The right fit with a therapist can be the most important factor in improving your mental health. I strive to provide a supportive environment in which my clients feel comfortable processing past experiences, exploring the present, and planning for the future. My approach to therapy is person-centered and relational and I tailor therapy to fit the unique needs of my clients. I will help you to explore the role of relationships in your life as they influence your overall well-being.
I work with individuals of all ages, including children, couples, and families. I specialize in postpartum depression/anxiety, anxiety disorders, and relationship and family issues. I teach parents how to manage oppositional and defiant behavior using behavior modification techniques and I have experience providing mental health clearance for bariatric surgery candidates.
My goal as a therapist is to create a supportive and nurturing environment where clients can reflect and learn from past experiences, but also remain grounded in the present moment. I fully recognize that it can be difficult to reach out for help and it is my priority to provide a compassionate, genuine, and empathic space.
