“Big journeys begin with small steps.” Making the step to seek therapy can seem daunting, and I would love to help support you on your journey. Many of my clients are referred to me seeking help with major life changes, issues at school or work, relationship problems, depression, stress, and/or anxiety. Providing a supportive space is essential in helping my clients process their feelings and concerns about the past, present, and future.
Identifying that you need help is a sign of strength, but what happens next? Finding a counselor that you feel a connection with is an essential part of your mental health journey. Don’t feel bad about being picky! I have a straightforward but gentle style that focuses on what you want to accomplish. Whether you are working through relationship difficulties, high stress, or anxiety/depression/self-esteem issues I am prepared to work by your side. I use evidence-based techniques that compliment your unique needs.
As a psychotherapist, I believe that each of us holds the capacity to utilize our personal creativity to resolve life's challenges. I seek to assist the folks I work with to find their strengths. I utilize a number of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Interactive Guided Imagery, and Ericksonian Hypnosis, play therapy, including work with sand tray. Upon the initial therapy session, we will work together to determine the most beneficial modality for you, your family, or your child. In addition, I may suggest expressive arts as a vehicle to create life changes.
I love working with people who are striving to rise from a place of brokenness; those who need help seeing their innate value and worth. There can be many things that block our vision of ourselves as being great. My goal is to work with clients who need help dusting off their glasses and learning how to reframe their way of seeing the world. Whether it is depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, infidelity, self-hatred, or fear that is stopping you; if you are willing to be vulnerable, then you can experience change. The goal being a new or improved vision for a new and improved you.

I have significant experience providing therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I use a strength based perspective believing that each one of us have inherent strengths that can help us manage life. My framework is based on trauma and attachment approaches which emphasize that the stress an individual experiences is usually rooted in a traumatic event that has formed negative beliefs, dysruption of lifestyle, change in family system, or that has helped to develop a less than satisfying parent child relationship. My ideal client is an individual that wants to have a happier life or a family or couple that wants more peace.

You realize that moving forward is often times the most important function of self-care, however you need help. I am humbled that you took the time to read my profile, so let's see how I can help.
How can I be helpful to you? The main approach I use in my work is one of collaboration, with a deep respect for the unique qualities of each individual client.
