About My Clients

Life can be a lot, especially right now. Our levels of stress & anxiety are at an all-time high and we are *supposed* to carry on as if everything is "normal." There is so much to manage with work, school, children, relationships, etc. Not being able to access our regular forms of support can make it feel impossible. If you are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, and/or your relationships, you are not alone and I can help.

My Background and Approach

I approach therapy by looking at each person as part of a larger family system. The way we each grow up influences our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors throughout our life. Some of these influences are positive and others can cause us difficulties and get in the way of the person we want to be and the relationships we want to have. I utilize a combination of CBT (Cognitive-Behavior-Therapy), Psychoeducation, and Mindfulness practices within my therapy in order to help my clients obtain knowledge and develop skills to assist them in difficult times.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe we all have the ability to grow and overcome our personal difficulties and live the life we want to have. Therapy is a great tool to help one learn more about themselves and guide them to a better and happier self.
