About me

I have been working with clients dealing with anxiety, health issues, and grief/loss for many years. I feel confident I can help you to make the changes you desire. Please reach out for a free, brief telephone consultation to see if we are a good fit.

I work with individuals who no longer want to feel like their thoughts and worry are out of control. They want to stop passing up experiences and opportunities because of fear. I also work with individuals who are dealing with health issues or grief/loss. In all of these situations, the desire is to stop having the past be a main influence on their present. We will achieve your goals in the safe, online space I provide for you to privately explore what is causing you trouble and, most importantly, find ways to improve.

I chose to go into the mental health field based on my own personal experience with anxiety, loss, and sickness in my childhood. I wanted to understand for myself how to be capable of working through difficulties, how to make changes, and then help others to do the same. I understand what it feels like to be scared of experiences, relationships, life changes, etc!
That is why I am so passionate about what I do. And it is a big part of why the therapy connection will be so powerful- knowing that you are working with someone who understands what it feels like to be where you are now.

I am a board certified telemental health professional, and added online mental health to my treatment format 5 years ago. I currently offer therapy exclusively through a confidential, HIPAA compliant online video format. Although I have chosen to focus my practice to online therapy, most of my professional experience is working with clients in person, and I can assure you that the connection and relationship is just as powerful and beneficial with therapy in an online format. The relationship is the cornerstone to the potential change you can make through the therapy process. I use a combination of therapeutic styles, including insight- oriented and cognitive behavioral therapy to help build the understanding and skills you need to make the desired changes.
I am an in-network provider with a number of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield insurances, Cigna, United Healthcare, and also a Medicaid provider.
