My Approach to Helping

Sometimes the obstacles in our lives create anxiety and stress. You may find this stress makes it hard to fully enjoy your life. The relationships in your life don't feel as they should. Your personal faith may struggle. I also know that major life transitions (marriage, new jobs, pregnancy, break up ets) have an impact on each person. They may be hard to navigate. And you feel like you are struggling! I believe you can find peace amidst the storm. You can find relief for the stress and anxiety that you are currently feeling. I believe its possible to not feel overtaken by anxiety and stress and I can help you with that. You can reconnect meaningfully with those in your life. I hope to be a compassionate space in your time of need. Please feel free to reach out and contact me!

More Info About My Practice

Unfortunately, I do not accept insurance at this time but work along with a sliding scale. I can provide a superbill for insurance reimbursement. If finances are an issue for you I would love to discuss further.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I'm skilled at working with people who struggle with ruminating thoughts, worrying, and anxiety symptoms including but not limited to social anxiety. I've had success in helping people find relief for those symptoms and more. I enjoy helping people navigate life transitions from getting a new job to entering a new relationship. I also have a special interest in helping people with faith related concerns and helping people connect their faith to their emotional health.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

Psychotherapy is a time and space where I get the privilege of being able to connect with others and hear what is happening in their lives and how they feel and think about it. People allow me into their intimate life moments and I get to be the holder of their difficulties and joys. This is a great honor for me!
