I have 30 years of experience helping people feel better and increase coping skills. I work with adults with depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar, panic disorder, and substance use.

My main focus is to make you feel better. I am person centered in terms of issues and create a gentle environment for change. Together we discuss challenges and goals. I learn new things from my clients all the time and I am very passionate about my work. I work mainly from CBT and DBT modalities and have discovered there are so many coping skills and new ways to view things to decrease feelings of distress.

I am a compassionate person, a good listener and easy going. I come with a non judgmental stance to any problem and accept all individuals the way they are. I am very good at finding alternatives and problem solving and at the same time I can listen for those who just need support.
