About My Clients

Life can be challenging and navigating your way through the world in a meaningful, authentic way can feel overwhelming and lonely. I am passionate about working with clients to affect personal growth & empowerment. I am passionate about working with couples, helping you navigate communication, emotional, and intimate paths within your relationship. My areas of specialty include anxiety, depression, relationship issues, the effects of childhood trauma and PTSD.

My Background and Approach

My focus is to empower you by drawing on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing techniques, solution focused therapy, family systems, and integrating art therapies and hypnotherapy if you desire. I believe in the strength of a safe, collaborative, supportive, non–judgmental therapeutic relationship as the basis of helping you overcome obstacles, gain insight, heal, motivate change, grow, thrive and move through the world in a meaningful, purposeful and authentic way. I take a realistic, authentic and holistic approach to healing.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
