My Approach to Helping

I specialize in working with veterans, first responders, and work best with clients who have interest in a solution-focused, problem-solving approach to issues.

Making the decision to try therapy can be difficult, and feel like things are out of control. I can help you understand the behaviors and emotions you are looking to change in a way that provides empowerment and promotes adaptability to future stressors.

I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) interventions in sessions, and value a comfortable and personable approach to treatment.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

Simply stated, I've been there. Not just as someone needing help and not knowing where to turn, but also as someone who was highly skeptical of the effectiveness of the process. I welcome the challenge of showing you how this works and how you can benefit from building skills and strength.
