My Approach to Helping

Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start..Nido Qubein. Life will always present challenges & sometimes can be complicated with overwhelming feelings of sadness, hopelessness, or anxiety; I am here to help. In a warm & safe environment, we will explore the relationship between your feelings, thoughts and behaviors. We will collaborate together to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety, highlight your strengths, & identify best coping strategies for life stressors. With 25 years of experience, I have supported adults presenting with mental health needs or chronic illness. I specialize in working with adults struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, & Bipolar Disorder. Motivational interviewing, Cognitive-Behavioral and Solution-focused techniques are employed as we partner together.
