My Approach to Helping

Engaging in therapy and stepping into vulnerability takes courage and inner strength. I believe strongly in the value of the therapeutic relationship. I harbor a space for individuals and families to feel heard, accepted, and secure. I create a space where teens, young adults, and adults feel safe, empowered, and supported. All humans deserve a safe and nonjudgmental environment to walk through fear and negative cognitions into personal growth.

When providing support to individuals and it is imperative to be attentive to both the mind and body. I support my clients in exploring their emotions and challenging their thinking. I partner with individuals to facilitate their journey in increasing their self-esteem, confidence, and developing healthy coping mechanisms so they are able to walk through and overcome any challenges life presents.

More Info About My Practice

I specialize in working with individuals ages 13-40, teens and young adults who are experiencing struggles with substance use and co-occurring disorders, including but not limited to depression and anxiety. I facilitate individuals in processing challenging emotions, developing healthy coping tools, implementing a self-care plan, and creating sustainable change. I also work with parents on prevention and intervention related to their teenager or young adult.

I facilitate a biweekly virtual support group for family members and friends that have a loved one struggling with mental health and or addiction. Family members are encouraged to participate in their own self-care and therapeutic support, working alongside their loved ones they worry so much about. For additional information or to participate in this group, please contact me.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Many enter therapy when a crisis occurs that causes them to feel uneasy or distressed. Some venture into therapy to continue with their personal growth. It is important to know that to enter therapy, you do NOT have to be in crisis. Often times, the deepest therapeutic work begins once individuals move through their crisis and enter stabilization.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

This is up to each individual. The length of time someone participates in therapy is based on their individual therapeutic process. When working with clients, my goal is to empower them to be able to gain self-awareness, develop healthy coping strategies, and implement these tools in their day to day.
