My Therapy Style

I've worked with individuals experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety and women experiencing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Facing the challenges and roadblocks that result from mood disorders can be one of the most overwhelming experiences for many. Utilizing evidence-based modalities in therapy can help you understand and process your emotions, learn effective coping strategies, and discover ways to heal and embrace this phase of life with strength and resilience so that you can focus on what is important.
