Announcement icon Due to COVID-19, I am currently offering Telehealth services through Zoom as well as phone sessions.
Are you feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed? Are you struggling feelings of sadness all the time? You may be struggling with a major life stressor or perhaps you are feeling you are not where you want to be in your life or how you got there. I am passionate about working with clients to help them heal from the past, cope with the present and repair and grow healthy relationships. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), I specialize in perinatal mental health, anxiety and depression, OCD, alcohol and substance abuse disorders, ADHD, life transitions, parenting and attachment, and relationship issues.
I believe that using a collaborative, strength-based approach with clients in a safe, nurturing environment allows for optimal healing and growth. My therapeutic approach is a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, attachment-focused, psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Mindfulness Therapy.
I understand no two individuals are the same, and I tailor our sessions together to address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with long-lasting strategies, helping you cultivate a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
