My goal as a therapist is to assist each of my clients in overcoming any issues that are preventing them from living their best lives.

My approach to therapy is based in attachment theory and is trauma sensitive. I am a Level-II Certified Trauma Professional. Whether you are suffering from anxiety or depression, PTSD, relationship problems, or health issues, counseling can help. There are many evidence-based therapies that have proven effective in treating these conditions and others. We can work together to identify difficulties and find the best treatment approach for you as an individual. Working together, and with dedication, we can improve your overall quality of life.
