About My Clients

One main obstacle to seeking mental health treatment is the stigma surrounding “going to therapy.” With that, you are often left feeling alone or more alone than before. My goal is to assist you in understanding and managing your mental health and successfully working on your goals. Whether you are struggling with your mental health, grief & loss, military/veteran issues, substance abuse, depression and/or anxiety, let's work together to get you to a better place mentally and emotionally!

My Background and Approach

If you've found my page, you may be seeking a therapist to begin your journey to healing. I truly look forward to working with you! Until then, allow me to share a grounding technique that I find helpful, especially for those struggling with anxiety. It's called the 5-4-3-2-1 grounding exercise. This grounding exercise could be utilized in nearly any setting. If you wish, you may write these down, but you do not need to. First, start by identifying (to yourself) FIVE things you see. Second, identify FOUR things you can touch. Third, identify THREE things you can hear. Fourth, identify TWO things you can smell. Fifth, identify ONE thing you can taste. Hope that grounding technique helped! Schedule your FREE 15 minute consultation today!
