My Approach to Helping
I believe that change and healing are possible and that everyone has the capacity to do so with the right support. I am passionate about helping my clients live their best life no matter what circumstances they have faced or are currently facing. I also believe that the relationship between client and therapist is the most important part of therapy. Without that positive connection, it would be impossible to do any meaningful work! I connect to my clients with compassion, honesty, and a genuine desire to help. I will work closely with you every step of the way to help you achieve your goals.
I work with adults and teens facing a variety of challenges. I specialize in depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders, body image, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and trauma-related issues.
I provide an environment that is safe and confidential. I also offer day and evening hours. Change is possible and I can help you achieve it. Please remember, you are not alone. Call me today so that I can help you live your best life.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Therapy is an opportunity to speak with an expert in the field of emotion and behavior in a judgment-free zone. It's a place where you can speak your innermost worries, fears, or life stories and be heard. There is power in telling your story and being truly listened to- and that is the first way therapy can help. Another way therapy can help is that you will receive honest feedback delivered with care and concern. Changing your life or the way you do things involves changing your perceptions. That's where the therapist comes in and provides feedback about certain patterns or behaviors they are noticing. Once you have this awareness, you can more effectively do something about it. Lastly, therapy can help by providing you with the tools to make positive changes in your life. Sure, you can talk about your issues and get feedback, but without the tools you cannot exact change. Learning these skills as well as figuring out what works for you and what doesn't is yet another invaluable aspect of therapy. In summary, therapy is an incredibly helpful experience where you can speak openly about your struggles, receive honest feedback, and learn how to change your life for the better.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
Weak or flawed? Absolutely not. In fact, going to therapy is the exact opposite of that. Here's why: It takes bravery to ask for help. It takes courage to let someone in to your innermost thoughts. It takes honesty to admit that you are human with all of the mistakes and pitfalls that come with it. It takes strength to go against the voice that tells you that you're weak or flawed. Going to therapy is one of the bravest things you can do if you are struggling and I encourage you to do so. Therapy aims to empower you and build upon your strengths. You deserve help as much as anyone does and don't let anyone (even you) tell you different.
