Great to meet you!

I hold a bachelor's degree in psychology, a master's degree in counseling, and a doctoral degree in counselor education and supervision. I have more than a dozen years of clinical experience and developed specialties in the treatment of depression, anxiety, substance and alcohol use disorders, women's issues, chronic illness and disability, and sexual and identity health. I work with adults and I am happy to provide both in person and remote services.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I utilize and approach that involves careful listening in a supportive and warm environment. I am interactive and directive; meaning I don't just sit and listen, but rather I am very involved in your care. I work to help you acquire tools as soon as possible to impact your ability to cope immediately, while also working on the big picture changes to sustain your goals.

What you can expect from our first session

Clients will gain coping skills.

Will learn how to change the way they think, feel, and behave.

Will begin to see themselves and their lives in a different way, which will free them from what confines them.
