“Since 2012, I have worked with people on issues of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, personality disorders, parent coaching, children with challenging behaviors, in addition to other life issues, and adoption and childhood issues.

I utilize a fairly straightforward approach to therapy. I work with several modalities, primarily Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also utilize Lifespan Integration and Motivational Interviewing to help with trauma and making life changes.

When I work with you, I will meet you where you are and look at how we can move forward for the changes you are seeking and the goals you want to meet. My relationship with you will be one of working together, laughing and crying sometimes, because life is not easy. My goal is to help you build confidence, recognize who you are, and your meaning in life. My approach is direct, validating, and non-judgmental and above all else, caring. I look forward to working with you.
