Counseling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and families.
I believe you have the power to make the changes you seek. There are times in our lives when we feel disempowered and disconnected from ourselves and others. I am here to walk with you on your journey towards healing.
I will provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where you can work toward your own personal empowerment to overcome your struggles.
I have experience working with those who struggle with Substance Abuse, Eating Disorders, Anxiety, Depression, and Trauma. My primary therapeutic modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.However, I work collaboratively with my clients to provide the most effective interventions possible based on their needs.
My approach is to tailor therapy to each client’s individual needs. I treat adults with concerns about business/school performance and creativity, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, childhood sexual or physical abuse, adult trauma, alcohol/drug problems, PTSD, codependency, adult children of alcoholics, and self-esteem.
Prior stressful events can contribute to the stress we experience now. This can lead to frustration, feeling defeated, compulsive behavior to cope (e.g., drinking/drug abuse, excessive efforts to please, overspending, overworking, avoiding, etc). Therapy helps you to identify the causes, gain control, and find solutions to enable increased confidence and peace of mind.
