About

I have experience working with adolescents, adults, couples and families. Using a client centered approach I work with the client helping them reach both their short and long term goals. A majority of my clients suffer with anxiety and depression but I work with other diagnoses as well. I am solution focused and like to see improvements and an increase in self esteem.
I specialize in working with anyone high school age and above including couples and families. I can offer ways for the client to reach his or her potential and help them with decision making and increased self esteem
As a therapist I understand how different the needs of everyone can be. It is a hard first step but I am confident that once you start you will be very thankful you made the decision. I work hard with you to help you continue to grow and reach the goals that you have been working towards.
