Life is messy, unpredictable, and challenging. At times, the struggles of today are complicated by the worries of the future or hardships of the past. I can help you break the chains which hold you back from enjoying the beauty in your life and finding inner peace. I truly believe we all have the capacity to change, heal, and grow. I feel passionately about helping individuals become the best versions of themselves. Change is hard and it’s also possible!
My client-centered approach lends itself to individual and customizable treatment plans and goals. My eclectic therapeutic style is comprised of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, dialectal behavior therapy (DBT), narrative, psychodynamic, and solution-focused brief therapy techniques. I will provide a compassionate, safe, and nurturing environment as we work towards finding balance and peace in your life.
Seeking help, whether it is your first time in therapy or another step on your healing journey, is courageous. I look forward to supporting you along your path of self-discovery.
