My Approach to Helping

When out of control emotions, thoughts, behaviors, or situations take over, they can have a negative impact on our lives, relationships, and sense of well-being. I believe we each have the inner strength to overcome these challenges, yet we sometimes lose sight of our personal power or lack the tools necessary to move forward. In these difficult times, it is only natural to seek support. I offer compassion, experience, and knowledge, along with evidence-based treatment models, tailored to meet your individual needs and put you back in control of your life.

I can help you make sense of your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors and work with you on techniques to modify how you think, feel, and react. With a deeper understanding of yourself and new skills to cope with stress, you will discover the strength that was within you all along.

We cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we chose to respond. Healing happens within relationships and it is crucial to find a therapist you connect with. Call, text, or email me today; I look forward to the opportunity to take this journey with you.
