Fog and Nature


You are not alone if you feel particularly challenged during these uncertain times. Reaching out for a therapist is a wise step towards self-care which is an important aspect of mental health right now. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health so I'm glad you are considering your mental health needs today. 

If you are experiencing a crisis, the safest thing for you to do is to call 911. There are hope and help. Below are links to additional resources.

I offer therapy for children, adolescents, teens, parents, and adult individuals. I believe our stories and struggles shape us into who we are and believe resilience can be identified and fostered from our past to support our present lives. 

Using your agenda and well-being as our guide, we collaborate and evaluate progress while working together.

I value open conversations with clients about their identity, values, and world views. The frameworks I tend to utilize are Psychodynamic Theory and Trauma-Informed Care rooted in neuroscience, attachment, self-regulation, and co-regulation. I view clients with a Humanistic and Strengths-Based lens while drawing interventions from Narrative Therapy, Self Compassion, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for skill-building. 

My style is warm and realistic as I strive to help clients see their potential and become aware of patterns that may be limiting and out-dated. I appeal to those looking for a therapist who sensitively holds past experiences while honoring the here and now.
