My goal is to facilitate patient growth through increased insight/ understanding of the limiting thoughts and beliefs often held onto for years. These roadblocks are mostly unknown to individuals on a conscious level. With a direct but supportive approach I will assist you in navigating around these roadblocks while learning new ways to deal with current and past challenges .  I provide a safe space for processing and exploring personal conflicts, relationships difficulties, traumas,  grief,  and stress management techniques. Additionally, I have worked extensively with mood disorders, eating disorders, PTSD, chemical dependency and women’s issues.  My area of focus is outpatient ages 13 through adults (including geriatrics), focusing on Individuals, couples and families.

You are not alone. I welcome the opportunity to work with you. Together we can formulate an individualized plan to meet your particular needs and surpass your goals.  All your  previous experiences have played a role in shaping you into the person you are today. Without exploration, the past may continue to exert control over current maladaptive behaviors in your day to day life. Together we will work to release the past and focus on learning, growing and transforming your future.

Life can be overwhelming and leave a feeling behind that everything around you is chaotic. I am here to guide you back to the feeling of control through psychotherapy. You can learn new ways to cope with the unforeseen events and learn to make positive changes. My goal is to create a safe, welcoming, non-judgmental environment.

I utilize a number of techniques and models including play therapy. I have had the privilege of working with a number of people from all different walks of life dealing with trauma, codependency, bi-polar, depression and anxiety. I enjoy working with couples, family, and individuals. Together we can figure out if this is the right fit for you.

Do you feel your anxiety and depression take the reins of your life, affecting your ability to make small decisions? Sometimes our overthinking and second guessing take away the happiness and fulfillment we need to function in a productive way, often missing the potential for a fruitful life. Your ability to shift the negative thinking patterns and get out of the dark cloud can benefit you to lead a rewarding life and improve the relationship with yourself and others. I’ve had the privilege to work with individuals in both inpatient and outpatient settings.

I can offer a safe nonjudgmental space to explore your past, present and future worries to help you gain insight to the triggers impacting the way you interact with the world. I am here to listen and not judge, as we are all on a journey for self-improvement and growth.
