Even the strongest person can be challenged by difficult experiences, whether in past or present life. Feeling overwhelmed by what is facing you or unsure how to make the changes you want can leave you feeling isolated, frustrated, scared, confused, and/or stuck. I help people facing these issues, including as it relates to:

Who Is A Good Fit
Clients who seek my help are from all walks of life who are looking for someone who is warm, empathetic and listens without judgement, including:
  • adolescents to older adults
  • students to working professionals to retirees
  • single, married, divorced, with kids or without.
No matter your life stage or circumstance, I understand the complexities of life that you are confronting, balancing competing life experiences and challenges. 
How Will We Work Together
Working together, we will explore the difficulties you are facing in a supportive, non-judgmental way.  Once we understand these issues, including what may be underlying them, we will build a set of skills, tools, and strategies for you to use. The goal is for you to heal, finding overall relief as well as ways to manage your day to day.  ​
Approaches I Often Use
To ensure we address the way mental health concerns are showing up in your life, the therapeutic process is person-centered - meeting you where you are. Based on this, we may use:
  • Person-Centered Approach 
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing)
  • Mindfulness
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • Existential Therapy
Goal For Therapy
The goal is to provide a nurturing environment that promotes self-acceptance and personal growth in a way that is meaningful to you.
