My Therapy Style

Do you find yourself feeling anxious, depressed, stressed, or confused? We can often find ourselves stuck in unhelpful patterns that postpone us from living our “best life”. Let’s work together to identify what can help you and what has been keeping you from achieving your goals. My work with clients involves a non-judgmental and warm approach. Allow me to provide you with a safe space where you will be challenged to move in the direction of greater everyday life satisfaction.

Reach out to me if you are an adult who feels consumed with worry, sadness, low motivation, relationship stress, or difficulty adjusting to major life changes such as grief, loss, motherhood, separation, and divorce. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Reach out to schedule now as I can help you begin your journey to a greater you!
