I am an experienced mental health therapist dedicated to helping individuals and families make meaningful and lasting changes to their lives. My clinical specialties are quite diverse, however I tend to focus on trauma recovery (PTSD), the treatment of anxiety & depression, as well as helping my clients navigate life transitions and relationship struggles.

My therapeutic approach is collaborative, supportive, solution-oriented, & centered on YOU. Every individual has unique experiences, needs, & preferences, therefore every person’s path to healing will be unique to them as well. I am committed to providing a safe, trusting, & nonjudgmental space for people to heal & grow.

If you are looking for a therapist who will agree with you 100% of the time, my style may not be the right fit for you. I provide my clients with constructive feedback, teach new skills, share insight, and ask questions to challenge perspectives. Clients often seek my help because they are feeling STUCK, isolated, or too overwhelmed to recognize how to start feeling better.
