As a therapist, I am always committed to my client's potential and well being. I focus on my client's strengths and core values to collaborate with them to find healing and solutions for their therapeutic needs. Empathy, constructive listening and feedback are combined with theory and holistic evidence-based practices to provide effective clinical support.

Over the course of my career, I have worked with diverse patient populations in various settings. These settings range from working in medically managed intensive inpatient detoxification services, to clinically supervising a 24-bed, 28-day residential treatment program, to outpatient individual therapy.

I am dually licensed and competent in treatment of mental health and substance abuse/addiction issues. The techniques I use depend on what is best suited for you and may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and motivational interviewing. I look forward to working with you in session.
