My Approach to Helping

Making the decision to begin therapy is not an easy one, but the therapeutic process can help you to understand the reason for your symptoms and behaviors, and assist you in making desired changes. My perspective is strength based and together we can work to identify obstacles, which may be getting in the way of achieving your goals. My approach is warm, respectful and empathetic. I am committed to best practices and am trained in EMDR and ERP. Incorporating various treatment modalities, I offer individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults, and am trained in couples and family therapy.
I am Independently licensed and have 20 yrs of experience treating individuals who may be struggling with the following: depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, substance use, life transitions and relationship struggles. Additionally, my experience at The Mayo Clinic provided me the unique perspective to support you through issues related to illness, grief and loss.
My goal is to provide you with an opportunity to express your feelings and thoughts in a safe setting, free from judgment. By exploring your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, I can guide you towards gaining a deeper understanding of your values and motivations, make meaningful changes, and better cope with and respond to life's challenges.
