Psychotherapist, MA, MSW, LCSW
I am a caring and compassionate professional dedicated to helping you grow and thrive. Our sessions will be collaborative, strategic, and goal focused. Above all, they will be respectful of your path. We will identify what's not working in your life and allow time to step back, reflect, and shift your approach. The therapeutic modalities I employ are evidence-based and individually focused -- modalities shown to be effective at helping people function at a higher level and live happier lives.
I have helped those with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, feeling stuck, feeling unfulfilled, a lack of self-confidence, difficulty coping with a major life changes, and/or trauma.
Pebble, my loving Labrador Retriever, has received training to comfort clients in the therapeutic process if they so desire. She is available for in-person sessions if you would like to snuggle with her to gain some emotional support!
If you feel you are struggling and need a compassionate ear, please reach out and know you do not need to go through this alone. I offer sessions in my office, your office, your home, and online.
