I work mainly with young adults ranging from 18-30 years old. This is a life stage full of unpredictable change. My clients are experiencing career or school concerns, family or relationship problems, body image concerns, sexuality questions, and health concerns. This can lead to uncertainty about the future, anxiety, frustration, and depression. When it comes to therapy, you might prefer tangible action steps that you can take to meet your goals, or prefer someone who will just listen in a nonjudgmental way. Maybe this will change session to session as your life changes, and that is okay too.

As a therapist, I get excited about the opportunity for change in a person's life. My goal is to connect with the client and to help them achieve healing, gain hope, and thrive individually. I take a holistic approach when counseling an individual; it's vital to look at other aspects of the client and their situation, not just the presenting problem. Family, friends, environment and medication are just a few of the factors that can influence a client's mental and emotional state.
