I believe therapy is a place where people grow. The therapeutic relationship is incredibly important, which is why I spend time learning what brings clients to therapy and what they hope to achieve. Once established, we work together to move forward with change and goals.

I have worked with children, adolescents and adults who are experiencing a variety of issues and struggles. I have helped clients address issues relating to anxiety, depression, communication difficulties, relationship difficulties and transitional problems. I have worked with clients in individual settings, group settings and family settings, all based on what best meets the needs of the clients and the support system surrounding them. I have also worked with individuals convicted of sexual offenses, specifically understanding the patterns of behavior as well as how to best prevent relapse in the future.
