My Approach to Helping
My passion is working with people who are experiencing depression, trauma reactions, PTSD, and issues specific to women. I provide an environment that is non-judgmental and shame-free. Our early life experiences as well as events throughout our life contribute to the perspective we have on life situations. Therapy allows for an objective look at these situations and seeing alternate viewpoints that may be more realistic. I have worked for four years with domestic abuse survivors and have encountered the various reactions that abuse can bring about. Domestic abuse is not just physical. It can be emotional, mental, verbal, financial, and/or legal. Please visit my website for more information on domestic abuse, especially if you suspect you may be a victim.
I am able to provide counseling for couples who are experiencing challenges in their relationship.

I am an out-of-network insurance provider and submit claims directly to the insurance provider. I have a limited number of sliding scale openings.

My Role as a Therapist
I believe that you know yourself better than anyone else knows you. My role as a therapist is to provide an outside, objective perspective within a safe, shame-free environment. We then work together to determine what approach is most beneficial for your unique situation.
