If you face barriers to a fulfilling, productive, and happy life, I urge you to consider psychotherapy. I have enjoyed my work in community mental health and substance abuse agencies, as well as in schools, and have helped many clients address their challenges. It's rewarding to guide people to more satisfying lives.

I have experience with individual therapy, crisis counseling, substance abuse, and group work. I am trained in strength-based positive psychology, mindfulness self-compassion, and post-traumatic stress. I frequently blend a range of techniques.

I explore and deepen an individual's understanding of their character strengths to change thinking that holds them back. I often utilize mindfulness techniques, parts work, self-compassion, and art.

More Info About My Practice

I have worked with older teens and adults of all ages, exploring a range of issues in group and individual settings. Sometimes life presents challenges that can better be addressed by exploring thoughts and feelings with another. Often when we share the pain we feel, that pain is diminished. It is a joy to engage with another to reduce discomfort and teach a client tools that they can take with them. If you feel stuck and are ready to move forward, please give me a call. Your life can be better.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I especially like psychotherapy because I get a chance to connect with others, help them to understand their past attachments and assist them in deepening their current relationships.
