About My Clients

Are you struggling with mental health or addiction recovery? Are you motivated to engage in therapy and have specific issues to address? If so, brief integrative psychotherapy is a great way to work through these issues. I'd love to partner with you and help you achieve your desired goals on your journey toward mental well-being.

My Background and Approach

I have over 9 years of experience working in mental health and addiction fields - spending time working with clients in long-term residential addiction treatment, PHP/IOP, and detox settings. In addition to my work as an addiction therapist, I also started a private practice in 2022. I practice therapy through the use of empathetic understanding, malleability, and by taking a "one size does NOT fit all" approach. I seek to help each client strengthen intrapersonal insight and awareness by providing an alternative lens or perspective by which the client may conceptualize their past, present, and future. It is my philosophy that by exploring the past, we may understand the present, and better plan for the future.
