You are not broken and you do not need to be fixed. There are some struggles in which you need extra support, an empathic person to hear you, skills and techniques, and a space in which to be you. I am a clinician who has worked with clients dealing with anxiety, depression, substance use, crisis, and family. My approach is to connect with the client while also implementing research based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma Focus, Experiential, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Client Centered Therapy.

I believes that therapy is a time for people to explore and better themselves leading to a more fulfilled life. I work from a person-centered approach meeting the client where they are at, but also utilize strategies from all different practices. I believe that the client is the expert in their own life and needs someone to show empathy, support, and guidance. I approach each session as a unique situation and involves the client in every step.

While I am skilled in working with a wide variety of clients, I most enjoy working with children, teens and adults who struggle with authority figures and themselves. I enjoy helping clients learn to know they are loved and heard. They often feel like they do not have a voice and they rebel because it has been more successful then being respectful to authority figures. The goals for the client would be learning to manage and express their feelings while learning to be respectful to one self and then respectful to others. The child's parents would learn and use positive parenting skills to help instill child's goals.

Life isn't always in our control (and no, I'm not a fan of that either). In therapy, we can learn to manage the things within our control - so that we are better equipped to contend with life’s inevitable ups and downs. Whether you're experiencing a big transition, stress from everyday life, a personal loss, or a severe mental illness - we can work together to make things easier. I have experience treating individuals with a variety of concerns or mental health diagnoses. I strive to make everyone - of any body shape/size, sexuality, gender, race, religion, or disability - comfortable in the therapy room (and in their own skins).

We all have times in our lives when things get hard to sort out, they are painful to bear, or frightening to face, and we may want to make things better, but just seem stuck. It can be helpful then to turn to someone, outside our circle of family and friends, with knowledge and skills to give us the support we need. I feel privileged to be in that sort of position as a therapist, when clients allow me into their lives by sharing personal experiences and emotions. I enjoy helping them discover ways to overcome whatever difficulties they are having.
