Life can feel overwhelming--but it doesn't have to. If you have experienced trauma, whether recurring or as an isolated incident, even the typical stresses of a normal day can provoke anxiety, fear, anger, or withdrawal. Luckily, therapy can provide you tools to deal with life's challenges, enabling you to minimize your stress levels and continue your personal growth. I will guide you to increased happiness and well-being by supporting you in exploring and enacting lasting, positive changes in your relationships with others, and most importantly, with yourself.

I draw from many treatment modalities, including: psychodynamic approaches, relational therapy, EMDR, DBT, CBT, ACT, EFT, and mindfulness strategies. I will support you in moving beyond the limiting beliefs, habits, and behaviors that hold you back from what you want, so that you can become the change you want to see in your life.

The key to a positive experience in therapy is developing a close, trusting relationship with your therapist. I invite you to join me for a free 15 minute phone consultation to help determine if you and I are a good fit.
