About

Working through difficult experiences and emotions can be challenging. It can be even harder to make desired changes in ones life when certain patterns have been established for so long. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.
By operating with an eclectic approach, I am able to encourage my clients to reach their full potential(s), and achieve therapeutic goal(s) in a way that meets their specific needs. Some of my areas of expertise include: anxiety, ADHD, OCD, depression, trauma, family dynamics, life transitions, marital issues, divorce, and co-parenting.
I use a holistic approach, focusing on the whole person and spirituality. I consider how one’s environment interacts with genetics, and how that interaction impacts mental health, and vise versa. I collaborate with other professionals whenever possible to ensure the best care for my clients. My greatest joy as a therapist is my clients’ success.
