My Approach to Helping

Do you feel stuck in the same unhealthy patterns? Do you feel like the path you're on isn't good for you to continue down anymore? You may wonder if change is even possible. The idea of change can be overwhelming, especially when we don't know where to start. In our sessions, I will provide a safe space to help you uncover the core of what's keeping you stuck and detour from old patterns that aren't serving you well. We will work together to find a new path that leads you to feel emotionally lighter and more confident in dealing with life's challenges as they come.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) and have been practicing for over 13 years providing therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I specialize in areas of depression, anxiety, relationship and life transition stressors, PTSD and trauma, addiction, marital/relationship discord, and grief and loss.

I believe that we all experience life through very different lenses and there is not a 'one size fits all' method when it comes to therapy. While tailoring treatment to fit individual client needs, I utilize an integrated approach to evidence-based therapeutic techniques. My cornerstone of treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT); however, I use other techniques when they fit a client's needs.

My goal is to help you identify underlying issues that make you feel stuck and to guide you to make the change you'd like to see.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Still not sure if therapy is right for you? Many people have reservations about beginning therapy. I welcome you to contact me today and learn how you can take the first step in experiencing growth and change in a way that can lead to a more balanced and fulfilling life.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Coming to therapy does not mean you cannot handle life's problems. On the contrary, it shows incredible strength and self-awareness to recognize there's an issue that's not getting better (and possibly getting worse), and that you may benefit from discussing it with someone who is trained in that particular area. By coming to therapy, you are making the decision to take action in resolving an issue rather than remaining in discomfort or distress.
