I believe that people are capable of making changes and healing from past hurts.

My Therapy Style

My style is direct, empathetic, and supportive. Most of my experience is with helping adults with substance use disorders and their family members. Many of my patients also struggle with anxiety, depression, mood regulation, and ADHD. I encourage building community support, setting up accountabilities, and self-reflection. I believe that people are capable of making changes and healing from past hurts. I find that people are often damaged through relationships and as a result, healthy relationships are necessary for healing. I work to provide a safe place for people to be transparent and open.
