I welcome the opportunity to hear your story and help you create the change you seek in your life.
I focus on creating a warm, supportive, nonjudgmental and empathic environment so you are heard and understood as we work together to achieve your goals.
I offer creative, flexible and personalized therapy for each client. I believe that your life journey is unique, and you yourself hold the answers inside of you. I am here to assist you in overcoming obstacles you encounter on that journey.
I work with clients of all ages, individually and/or in group settings. I have worked with clients who have had general life stress, or have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, autism spectrum disorder/Asperger’s Syndrome, learning and developmental disabilities, self-esteem, career and school transitions, PTSD, and more. My approach is integrative and tailored to my clients, combining elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and person-centered approaches, as well as including social and vocational skills coaching, stress coping and mindfulness strategies, and interactive behavioral therapy when needed.
My focus is on you and helping you take your next steps towards your goals. Seeking therapeutic guidance is the first step on that journey, and can be a challenging one to take.
I admire you for seeking support, and I look forward to walking with you on that road.
