My Approach to Helping

I provide a warm, empathic environment that allows you to explore the issues that have brought you to therapy. After this exploration I work with you to gain insight to the issues whether it be feeling "stuck" in the past, suffering with depression or anxiety, or a relationship, work or college concern. With this knowledge I work collaboratively with you to see you move to a place of action, to either process old memories that are keeping you "stuck", or to learn new skills to help you move forward. I will use different methods of treatment that best suit you. I believe there is always hope and change is possible.

More Info About My Practice

I accept Carefirst Blue Cross BlueShield PPO plan and approved out of network provider for Tricare.
