I strive to create a trusting partnership with you and believe that you are a whole person who is made of many parts; the helpful, the hurtful, the positive, the things we want to change and everything in between. I provide a safe space where you can feel comfortable sharing painful life experiences and shedding those things that have proven too heavy to carry alone, a space where I will help hold your pain.

I specialize in helping clients manage anger and adapt to a life of responding rather than reacting. I also work with clients who have a history of childhood trauma and those who wrestle with PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. I use an individualized approach, including incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness that have proven to be successful coping strategies as well as various other techniques tailored to your specific needs.
