I am a compassionate and experienced clinician who is dedicated to helping others.

Reaching out for help in a time of crisis is never easy. Acknowledging that you need support is the first step. Maybe you have been struggling to manage obsessive or negative thoughts. Perhaps you experienced a recent loss of a loved one or break up. Maybe you are struggling to communicate effectively with your partner or family. Are there past traumatic experiences that you wish to address and process? If any of these scenarios resonate with you, psychotherapy can be an effective next step in your journey.
I believe that the therapeutic process should person-centered, structured and safe. I have worked with a wide variety of clients of all ages. My areas of expertise in direct client work include PTSD/Trauma, Anxiety Disorders, Substance Use, Family Counseling and Family Therapy.
My goal as a therapist is to join you on your current journey, help you build on your strengths and assist with the development of new skills that will sustain you when our time is complete.
