Are you ready to make a change in your life?
Change can be scary, difficult, and unpredictable and I am here to walk through it with you. I am passionate about working with individuals, children, teens, couples, and families to find what works for them, meeting them where they are at, and making certain that they are seen, heard, and understood. I believe that everyone is capable of change, and forming a trusting client therapist relationship is an important first step to challenge old thinking patterns and habits, and make change and growth happen in therapy.
My approach is person centered and I use solution-focused, CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, strategic family therapy, trauma focused, interpersonal neurobiology and storytelling methods. I enjoy working with people from all backgrounds and ages, starting with preschoolers to those who are transitioning to different stages of their lives.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, autism, developmental disorders, divorce, racial traumas, and life transitions.
I am committed to providing you a safe environment to explore your healing process, find peace within yourself, and strive for healthy relationships. Please reach out to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we are a good fit.
