my Mission & Approach

I see therapy as teamwork, and it is my goal to partner with you through the therapeutic journey from start to finish. At your first session, I ask you to pinpoint the results you desire. If you aren't exactly sure what results you are seeking, or if you're unsure that you can articulate what your goals are, I can help you with that, too. To build upon your existing strengths (you've made it this far on your own - you're doing something right!), I apply personally tailored approaches and techniques from evidence-based practices to help you gain insight and perspective, learn coping skills and strategies, and in turn make the necessary changes to achieve your goals and live a happier life.

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults experiencing the challenges of anxiety, life transitions, such as beginning a new career or the end of a significant relationship, and trauma, including survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, as well as on the job trauma for first responders.

Power of Empathy:
I’m in it with you. I’m not here to fix you.
I’m not here to feel it for you. I’m here to feel with you and let you know you’re not alone.
