I know that life can become difficult when love, validation, and respect are missing. Life is also very difficult when past traumas have been left unresolved. I can help you move past the challenges that you are facing. The issues I specialize in are depression and anxiety, trauma, and relationship or family difficulties (communication, trust, parenting, etc.). It doesn't matter how far back these issues go; there is no need to continue letting them negatively affect your life. I will work closely with you to help you resolve the things that have been bringing you down while I make sure your needs are being met.

While striving to always be empathic, I feel that it's important to help you face your issues head on in order to get your life back. I know that is a frightening concept, but I am a firm believer in going through your emotions, not around them.

As your therapist, my job is to be understanding, non-judgmental, and supportive during your therapeutic journey and to make sure I am with you every step of the way. We will continue to fine tune your treatment goals and achieve exactly what it is you're seeking from therapy.

More Info About My Practice

I offer free initial phone consultations to all clients so that we can both determine if I am able to meet your needs. I do use a sliding scale and can accommodate you if are struggling. My fees range from $80 - $120 per session. If you have insurance, I am able to provide you with a superbill.

Though I see all types of clients from all walks of life and work with various issues, I do have two specializations. These specializations are working with children and teenagers and also working the the LGBT population. No matter what your background or presenting issues are, I am confident that I can help you.

My Role as a Therapist

My role is to be your passenger on this therapeutic journey you have embarked on. As we work closely together, we will be able to better understand which path it is that you would like to find yourself on. I will make sure to empower you, validate you, and guide you as you navigate life and all the possible forks in the roads.

If you have past trauma, we will revisit your issues to resolve them so that you may live a happier life in the present. My job will be to fine tune the therapeutic process so that you are getting exactly what you want out of it, reaching any goals and expectations you have set.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

A lot of people think their problem(s) cannot be resolved. What I say to that is hard work always pays off. If you are willing to be your truest self in therapy and face your issues head on, then you can make the changes you are seeking. Therapy is not an easy process by any means; it requires you to go through your problems, not around them. This means that deep seeded emotions and past unresolved issues will be brought to the surface. A good therapist is one who will be with you on this journey, empowering you, building your confidence, being compassionate about your situation, and understanding you. This is what I aim to do as your passenger on this journey. If you have never tried therapy, I encourage you to do so and allow the healing to begin. If you have already been in your own therapy, surely you know the power of the therapeutic process. If you want a better quality of life, I will work my hardest and help you achieve it.
