Therapy can be a powerful tool to overcome life’s obstacles. As a therapist, I am passionate about helping others navigate through life by achieving their goals and living happy, healthy, rewarding lives. I have worked with individuals, and families in a variety of settings including community mental health, inpatient behavioral health, court mandated treatment, and outpatient individual/group therapy. I have experience working on a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, addictions, relational issues, life transitions, stress management, behavioral disorders, and personal growth. The best way to help and support others through positive growth is with collaboration and compassion. I understand that everyone comes to therapy with unique and individual needs and that not one approach fits all. I offer an eclectic approach tailored to your individual needs and goals while providing a nonjudgmental, empathic and safe space for you to openly express your thoughts, feelings and experience the growth and healing process. I utilize a variety of evidence-based practices including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma recovery through EMDR, and problem solving through Solution-Focused therapy while incorporating client-centered and mindfulness strategies. My approach is compassionate, strength-based, person-centered, and holistic. I am confident that together we can uncover your strengths and help you move towards a balanced and meaningful life.
