I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling and depression, anxiety, mood disorders and trauma.
Life is a journey and it can be messy, challenging, and painful. During difficult times, everyone could use a helping hand and a supportive space to process what they are going through. As a therapist, my goal is to help you navigate through those difficult times and the specific challenges you may be facing. I want to support you in gaining insight into your life and strengths, help you heal, and empower you to initiate changes to cultivate a more fulfilling life.
I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and adults who are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, and bipolar disorder. My prior experience includes working in a crisis unit with adults experiencing acute distress, providing outpatient therapy to children, transitional age youth, and families facing a variety of challenges, teaching adolescents social and emotional regulation skills, and implementing ABA therapy to children & youth with developmental disabilities.
Every individual’s experiences are unique and I take a client-centered approach, providing a variety of evidence-based therapy modalities that fit your individual needs, strengths, and goals, but I enjoy incorporating mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy into my work with clients. My purpose is to help you work through whatever you bring into the room, create a safe, affirming space with a compassionate, non-judgmental ear, and support you in learning new skills to find the beauty in life and cope with life’s challenges.
