My Approach to Helping

I believe in your ability to overcome the challenges you face, and it’s my job to help you along the way. I’m here to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship that combines compassion with evidence-based treatments. Having worked for seven years in the mental health field, spanning multiple agencies and serving a variety of populations such as adolescents, veterans, recovering alcoholics, and adults, I have the tools to get you past issues you’ve struggled to vanquish on your own.

Perhaps you’re dealing with low self-esteem and have trouble staying motivated. Maybe you struggle with persistent worrying and anxiety that makes it difficult for you to relax in daily life. Or maybe you have difficulty feeling safe after a painful event or troubled childhood. You may also not be able to fall or stay asleep. Maybe your intimate relationship feels like a constant struggle. I can help with all of these things, choosing techniques specially tailored for your needs and sensitive to issues of diversity.

Therapy may seem like an uncertain proposition, especially if you are someone who grew up under the assumption that emotions were to be ignored and shut away. I understand this, having worked with many people who've had this experience. I promise you though, that you are capable of change and healing. By contacting me, you’ll have already gotten past the most daunting step of the process.
