About My Clients

I support individuals through diverse life challenges—stress, anxiety, depression, work and school-related issues, identity exploration, and self-esteem enhancement. My approach is tailored to address the unique needs of each individual, creating a welcoming and empowering environment for positive mental health outcomes. While I enjoy and extend my services to children and adults, my particular expertise is in guiding teens & young adults through the complexities of these challenges.

My Background and Approach

With a diverse background in various mental health sectors, I bring a wealth of experience to guide you through your unique challenges. I understand that each person's path is different, which is why I tailor treatment specifically to you. By integrating evidence-based interventions such as cognitive-behavioral therapy with traditional talk therapy, I offer a comprehensive approach to healing. I believe in the power of laughter and genuine human connection, using these elements when appropriate to foster a supportive environment where you can freely explore your inner thoughts and emotions. Together, we will work on practical skills to tackle life's hurdles with confidence, empowering you to achieve your goals and experience personal growth along the way. If you're ready to take that first step towards positive change, I'm here to support you every step of the way.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

I'm passionate about guiding individuals through change and fostering meaningful transformations in their lives. My commitment is to create an environment where every person feels valued, respected, and supported in their own identity and experiences. I believe in considering the interconnectedness of all aspects of an individual's life—from physical health to mental well-being, relationships, and personal values. Recognizing the importance of finding a therapist who truly understands your experiences, I provide compassionate listening, practical tools, and unwavering support on your journey towards personal growth. As for myself, I hold a deep affection for animals, am intimately acquainted with the challenges of chronic illness, and embrace the diversity found in all walks of life.
