I specialize in working with individuals and couples who struggle with or are affected by anxiety, depression, addiction, anger management, and coping issues. I build collaborative relationships with my clients, and provide a safe and nurturing environment that lends itself to the growth process. I am eclectic in my approach, utilizing evidence based practices proven to be effective.

Mission

Often clients come to therapy thinking that the process is about revisiting past events or focusing on talking about feelings. The reality is that these approaches do not lead to behavioral change. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral techniques in conjunction with other solution focused strategies that have proven to be effective. I will teach you skills to change unproductive or self-limiting ways of thinking and behaving. I help clients redefine experiences and challenges so that they emerge with clarity and strength. I teach clients how to be in the driver’s seat of their lives, giving them concrete tools needed to emerge from unhealthy patterns and challenges. You will feel strong and empowered, and will implement long term changes, creating happiness and fulfillment in your life.

My mission is to help support you on your journey towards living a fulfilled life. I will help you tap into your inherent strengths, and will guide you in assigning meaning and purpose to distressing events so that you emerge with a newfound sense of strength, confidence, and enhanced skills geared towards achieving health and happiness.
