My Approach to Helping

I have over a decade of experience working with clients with trauma and crisis-related anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. My primary focus is helping you to move past difficult times in your life, cope with significant changes and enjoy your life's potential.

I have worked in inpatient psychiatric units, specializing with PTSD, as well as crisis stabilization, substance use and geriatric psychiatry units. I have worked with family members who have loved ones with mental health issues and couples dealing with infidelity issues.

I might be the right fit for you, if you are struggling to move through difficult times in your life, feeling stuck or lost. Together, we can develop your potential and increase your success in long-term mental health.
