My Approach to Helping

New Clients Welcome! To be human is to feel the ups and downs that life has to offer. I'm here to help you overcome and thrive! Whether you are feeling overwhelmed, numb, angry, hurt, depressed, anxious, or maybe you aren't even sure what you\'re feeling.. my goal is to give you a conversation that you won\'t receive anywhere else; to help you feel heard, understood, supported, and validated so that you can do your best work to make progress towards your goals. Whatever we are holding back or we aren\'t saying has power over us. That\'s what keeps us feeling stuck, unhappy, and unfulfilled. It's time to take the power back!

As your therapist I can help you find solutions to what has been holding you back, make meaning in your life, and co-create a future that helps you thrive. I use a variety of techniques that are tailored to your specific needs including cognitive restructuring, emotion processing and reflection, trauma focused work, use of coping skills, and more.

We all experience times of emotional challenge at home, work, or in the relationships we share with others. Finding a therapist that understands your needs can make all the difference. Take a positive step to build a life you love and reach out today.

I do return calls and emails every business day. I look forward to hearing from you!
