My goal is to work in a partnership with clients to assist them in recognizing their own strengths, self-worth, and resilience to promote growth and positive changes. I have 10+ years of mental health experience (including individual, family/couples, and group therapy) addressing a wide range of emotional and behavioral challenges including past hurts (trauma), substance use, depression, anger, anxiety, self-destructive behavior, loss of touch with reality, relationship issues, and various types of adjustments to life changes. My ideal client is one who is overcoming adversity.

My therapy style is relaxed and centered on the belief that ALL individuals are deserving of care and respect. I seek to create a comfortable, non-judgmental, and supportive environment where individuals can process and explore issues and/or stressors while also gaining greater understanding and discovery of themselves.

I believe that a meaningful relationship with a therapist based on trust is ESSENTIAL in our therapeutic process.
