My Approach to Helping

Are you looking for a therapist because you want relief from suffering? Does your mind race all the time? Can’t turn it off no matter how hard you try? Do you have trouble sleeping, concentrating, or just being present in life? Do you feel guilty for not being able to be shut your mind off, be present and enjoy life even though you have a lot to be grateful for? Do you feel like you’re just existing but not really living, let alone thriving? Well, a lot of these symptoms are anxiety or depression based and can be linked to trauma. And I can help! I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression and trauma.

You don’t have to suffer in silence anymore. There are ways to get relief & healing that can profoundly change your life. Please know that, with some work, thriving in life is a very real possibility. About me: I am a collaborative strength-based therapist, meaning we will work as a team to elicit your strengths so you can use them to your advantage.
My style is caring, empathetic and supportive. My clients describe me as down-to-Earth (if you want a stuffy Psychoanalyst-type, I’m not the one for you!) , knowledgeable, engaging, with a good sense of humor they find therapeutic. I’d love to see if my services are a good match for you, so contact me so we can book a free 15-minute phone consultation.
