Do things feel confusing, overwhelming, or uncertain? Life is difficult. At times it can feel like we’ll never break free of the pain. Anxiety and worry do not have to rule your life. It’s time to start living the life you deserve, one of self-compassion and courage. It is my passion to help clients challenge the beliefs that influence the view of ourselves, our world, and the people around us. I truly value being able to connect with you over the things that make us feel vulnerable, imperfect, and human. Together we will collaborate to radically accept, grow from, and manage these painful experiences while continuing to build a life worth living.

I use an integrative approach to therapy, pulling from evidence-based interventions, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, solution focused therapy, & Trauma-Focused CBT to create individualized treatment plans that address each patient’s concerns and ultimately reduce emotional suffering. Contact me today to see if we can be a good fit for one another.
