About My Clients

I work with adults, children (teens), and couples to create a plan to help solve any issues affecting your life. I have experience working with families dealing with daily challenges. I’m able to build a rapport with teens who have trouble at home or school. I‘ve worked with foster children in the foster care system for over 10 years.

My Background and Approach

Therapy might be one of the hardest things a person may face. It opens us up to a vulnerable place that we might not be ready to go. It can be hard to trust a stranger with some of the most painful feeling in our life. You’re an expert of yourself, so we'll work collectively to create a treatment plan to focus on reducing your symptoms. At some point, we might all experience self-esteem issues, depression, or anxiety but it's important that we're able to manage these emotions. If you're ready to focus on change I'm here to help. Let's work together to get you back on track.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Therapy isn’t easy, but if you are willing to put in the work, I am willing to be here to support you emotionally and mentally. I believe in working with you to identify problems and together we’ll create a treatment plan. We’ll assess the goals and determine if any changes are needed. You can think of me as an agent of change, I’ll challenge your behaviors and find ways to replace unwanted thoughts with newly learned behaviors.
