About Me

You notice your emotions are all over the place and you don’t know how to control them. Your head might be spinning with worry about the past and the future. When things get difficult and things we have to do pile up we can lose sight of the moments that help us stay balanced or steady. You are not alone. Therapy can help you get feeling like yourself again. Through teletherapy, you will receive the same high quality care you would get in an office from the comfort of your own surroundings.

I bring a steady and calm approach to therapy utilizing a strengths-based, non-judgmental, empathetic, and empowering approach to treatment using motivational interviewing, CBT & DBT. Each person is capable, resilient, and a whole human being. You might need a little help sometimes to listen to that wise voice inside of you that knows what to do. I can help.

I enjoy working with adults and teens who have difficulty with anxiety, depression, other mood disorders, relationship struggles, trauma, adapting to major life changes, and managing stress. I have supported clients through adapting to the inevitable changes life brings, grief and loss, exploring and embracing sexuality and/or gender identity, and much more.
