Owner / Licensed Clinician

Taking that first step to find a therapist can feel like the biggest leap you will ever take. You might initially be hesitant to seek out support for personal matters. You want to find a person you can connect with, who understands you, and who can walk with you through your journey of healing.

Therapy is a process that is best achieved by working with a therapist who is a good fit. I work together with my clients through the therapeutic process. I offer my clients an empathic, open, respectful, and non-judgmental environment in which they can feel safe and nurtured to grow. I encourage and empower my clients to achieve their greatest capabilities.

I utilize an eclectic individually tailored therapeutic approach to meet the client’s needs. I draw from various methodologies and techniques including solution-focused, cognitive behavioral, motivational interviewing, humanistic, trauma focused, reality, and person-centered therapies.

Among my areas of expertise are depression/bipolar, anxiety/panic, addiction and recovery, BIPOC and diversity issues, relationship issues, stress management, impulse control, self-esteem and empowerment, LGBTQIA+, gender and sexual identity, lifestyle changes and adjustments, trauma, and codependency. 

Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn strategies to help you both right now and in the future. Together we can work through the challenges and stressors you are experiencing to live a happy and healthy life full of immense possibilities. I look forward to the opportunity to support you through this process.
