My approach is collaborative and tailored specifically to you.
I appreciate that common issues, such as anxiety or depression, show up and impact individuals' lives in varied and highly personal ways. I am interested in understanding how you experience yourself and others and how your history has helped shape you, brought you to this moment and continues to influence you.
I provide a safe, open and non-shaming environment in which you can take risks and explore different ways of thinking, feeling and being. My aim is to help you gain clarity about the underlying causes of your problems, provide strategies to help you cope day-to-day and empower you to trust your inner voice and live each day authentically.

People seek help when something in their life isn't working. Some are searching for a way to put an end to their emotional pain. Others want to feel like themselves again, find what's missing from their life, or to stop patterns of behavior that feel out of their control. They've usually tried everything they could think of to do on their own, perhaps even used strategies that have worked in the past. But they're still feeling stuck.
Below are some common struggles that therapy can help you address.
Depression & Stress
Difficulty Making Decisions
Addictive or Compulsive Behavior
Lack of Motivation or Follow Through
