About My Clients

It takes courage to share and unless you feel comfortable and safe, it is hard for anyone to open up. I have worked with many different people and cultures and I have understanding and insight into a variety of challenges. I know it is very hard to open up, and I will help you along when it is difficult.

My Background and Approach

I use a variety of evidenced based skills in my practice. We will work together to build awareness of how your emotions may be getting the better of you, and work on improving your ability to be in control of them. I look forward to working with you and finding ways for you to make lasting changes to help you live the life that you want.​ ​I specialize in helping people who struggle with anxiety, grief, addiction, substance use, and post traumatic stress. I have extensive training and experience with CBT, EMDR, DBT, and mindfulness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I value integrity, commitment, and honesty. I believe that everyone deserves to have a place to share their challenges and find a way to heal.
