I work collaboratively with you to create a treatment plan that is uniquely tailored to your therapy goals.

My Therapy Style

I am an experienced therapist with a compassionate and nonjudgmental approach. I have extensive experience using evidence-based practices. I use these techniques to help you evaluate and work through difficult issues and behaviors that may be keeping you from moving forward. I work collaboratively with you to create a treatment plan that is uniquely tailored to your therapy goals. I believe that the most effective therapy combines nurturing support, concrete tools, and a results-oriented approach. I specialize in helping individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, and relationship issues.
