About My Clients

I enjoy working with a variety of individuals and a wide range of concerns and issues. My specialty areas include working with anxiety, depression, trauma, and men's issues. I have experience providing individual therapy with adults in multiple settings and offer a wide variety of services to help assist you with your concerns.

How I Can Help You

Everyone needs a little extra help now and then. People who come to therapy usually have tried to do it on their own and haven’t reached their goals. In our work together, I’ll help you explore your concerns and create solutions that will help you improve your life. It's important that you feel there is a trusting, cooperative relationship where we can create hope for a better future, find purpose for your life, and help you reach your goals. We will work collaboratively to empower you to create meaningful change in your life. You'll find therapy with me to be supportive, collaborative, and strengths-based. My clients find me to be warm, personable, compassionate, and non-judgmental. When you are ready to take that next step, please give me the opportunity to help you. I wish you all the best in creating change to be happy and live your best life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe it takes courage and strength to want to improve and move towards a better life. Therapy is a wonderful tool to help assist with that. I believe that every person has strengths that they can use to create growth and change. Acknowledging that your life is not where you want it to be and reaching out for support is an important first step. I feel honored and privileged to do the work I do and to help individuals move to achieving their full potential. Let’s work together to get you to where you want to be. I hope I can help you.
