I specialize in work with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship and life transition stressors, trauma, addiction, and grief/loss.

How can therapy help you?

When you feel stuck in the same unhealthy patterns and recognize that the path you’re on isn’t good for you to continue down anymore, you may think “I’ve been doing this for so long, how do I even change it at this point?” The idea of change itself can be overwhelming and it can be difficult to know where to even start.

Therapy provides a safe space to help you get to the core of what’s keeping you stuck and empowers you to detour from the current path you’re on. In our sessions, we will work together to find a new path that leads you to feeling more confident in dealing with life’s challenges and emotionally “lighter”. Everyone experiences things differently through their own personal lens; therefore, your treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs.
