I am an experienced adolescent and adult Psychotherapist who has over 20 years with individuals, couples and families. In addition to working in private practice I have worked as a school psychologist, in home therapist and in multiple outpatient settings. My certifications in EMDR and DBT make me an expert in working with trauma, addictions, anxiety, emotional dysregulation and mood disorders.

My clients are able to work through their issues in a supportive and motivating environment which helps them feel understood, empowered and hopeful.
Learning how to cope and communicate your feelings instead of turning to destructive behaviors and negative patterns is a large focus of our work. Life is challenging at times and creating lasting changes is worth it. Sometimes working with a professional with a different perspective with extensive experience and training can make all the difference.
