I enjoy working with individuals of all ages and I am experienced in treating a variety of difficulties, including: anxiety, depression, childhood behavioral problems, autism, recent family adjustments, parenting skills, and I have a wide variety of experience working with couples. I am passionate about delivering individualized and holistic treatment to each of my clients using treatment modalities most appropriate for the client's needs.
I provide a safe space to learn coping skills and strategies and assist clients to develop holistic individualized treatment solutions. I work closely with clients to build strong rapport as the foundation of our work together to ensure a safe, supportive environment for healing; regardless of the reason they are seeking treatment.
I work with a wide range of ages and offer therapy for a variety of situations including anxiety, depression, LGBTQ, parenting issues, behavioral struggles, anger management, self-esteem, grief and loss, life transitions, mood disorders, and trauma. I also have experience working with people with diagnoses of Autism and Intellectual Disabilities.
I am passionate about partnering with individuals to create a collaborative relationship to identify personal goals, and a dedication to provide guidance and support to empower the individuals I work with to reach these goals. I utilize a holistic and eclectic approach within therapy tailored to meet individual needs.
I value creating a strong rapport with the individuals I work with and believe that therapy should be an enjoyable experience. I have a warm, empathic demeanor and often use humor within sessions. I truly believe that a therapeutic alliance with the individuals I work with creates the foundation required for change and advancement in one’s life.
I specialize in working with individuals struggling with trauma, anxiety, mood disorders and dual diagnosis. I partner with individuals to understand, cope and reframe their overall life structure to become happier, healthier and more driven towards attaining life goals.
Therapy should be individualized for each person. I strive to provide a comfortable and welcoming environment that encourages individuals to better understand and accept themselves and their experiences..
I encourage individuals to strive for personal growth in order to add quality to their lives. I specialize in working with individuals who have suffered abuse and trauma.
