About

I have robust experience treating a wide range of behavioral health issues. I help people find ways to live a more meaningful life, find refuge in the storm, enhance coping ability, and improve overall functioning. Conditions I treat include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and adjustment disorders; additionally there are a number of diagnoses that are closely related to these that I can also treat. I enjoy working with couples and believe when a couple finds ways to enhance their committment and emotional security, the partnership becomes a safe place to be loved and give love.
I work from a blend of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Interpersonal Person-Centered approaches. I firmly believe emotions are meant to be felt and understood, while we owe it to ourselves to manage this so we can be as effective as possible in our lives. Additionally, I offer appointments in the evenings and weekends only.
Life is hard sometimes and suffering is part of life. I believe therapy can provide a space that is free of judgment. My clients report feeling understood, cared for, validated and challenged. My work is meaningful to me and I'm called to do this. Be curious about what you are enduring and step into a life that rewards you for your courage.
