My Approach to Helping
Welcome! I am dedicated to helping you through life's challenges with empathy and expertise. Guiding you to your "best self" using a holistic and individualized approach is my absolute priority. My counseling style is warm, compassionate, solution-focused and client-centered. I help adults, young people, and children to resolve issues such as anxiety, depression, loss of direction, family conflicts, relationship challenges, women's issues, child or adolescent issues, addiction(s), and more.
My areas of expertise include addressing emotional disturbances, anxiety, depression, existential growth, and weight losseating challenges. I also provide professional guidance to people who are interested in career exploration, personal growth, and health and wellness management.
In addition to my advanced training and clinical experience in psychotherapy, I lead a team of other talented specialists to provide each client with an individualized and affective approach to treatment.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
In my eyes, therapy is a journey. This deeply personal and individual experience is a process of personal wellness exploration. Therapy can help with many life concerns, from improving mental health symptoms and learning coping tools, to formulating and executing many types of goals, to achieving overall happiness and balance. At every stage in life and for every person, therapy can be useful. Often, there is a stigma attached to therapy that holds people back from coming in; the idea that therapy means you are "sick." This idea is based around a period of time when therapy was more pathologically based. The reality is today, however, that a perfectly healthy individual can benefit from therapy. At it's most basic level, it's about human connection and support, and the wonderful benefits of having a shoulder to lean on when things get complicated, or an unbiased person to bounce ideas off of.
