My goal as a therapist is to assist you in developing skills to help you thrive in life, feel grounded and a sense of peace and happiness. I provide a safe and supportive environment where you can feel comfortable in openly sharing your perspectives, hopes, aspirations, fears, and treatment goals. I strive to not only listen, but to truly hear your messages and stories. Throughout my training I have worked in inpatient and outpatient settings providing individual, family and group therapy to teens and adults.
I draw from modalities that are tailored to each individual, depending upon their concerns. I take an eclectic approach, as no individual is the same. I have work successfully with individuals who suffer from post traumatic stress, relationship issues, anxiety, and depression as well as many other emotional and psychological struggles.
I truly enjoy building rapport with my clients, which is the foundation of a great working relationship. It is important to work at my client's level and pace, without putting pressure on when to disclose difficult information. I practice via my private office and I offer confidential video sessions.

Everyone experiences sadness at times. But depression is something more. Depression is extreme sadness or despair that lasts more than days. It interferes with the activities of daily life and can even cause physical pain. Fortunately, depression is highly treatable.
Therapy creates an experience of being basically acceptable instead of basically wrong, and this naturally improves self-esteem. By treating you as acceptable, the therapist models a different way for you to relate to yourself.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
