Great to meet you!

My ideal client is someone coping with mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and/or substance abuse. I specialize in Behavioral Activation as an evidenced based intervention for treating mood disorders and moving clients toward their goals. I also enjoy working with couples and families to help them communicate better and resolve interpersonal conflict in a healthy way. I offer Prepare-Enrich marital/premarital counseling for those in committed relationships.

A bit about my approach to therapy

As a therapist, I am warm, empathetic, and understanding. I believe that all thoughts, feelings, and behavior serve a purpose. My goal is to help clients identify their purpose and then work to find healthier, more constructive ways to accomplish that purpose. I believe every person is unique and I help each client self actualize their full potential by customizing a treatment plan to their goals.

What you can expect from our first session

I am a solution focused therapist. I help clients clearly identify goals to work on in therapy, so we make the best use of our therapy time together. I complete a comprehensive intake assessment with each client in the first session, so I can fully understand what is going on in their life. I expect clients to apply therapy tools and strategies in between sessions, to work toward their goals. I want clients to leave each session feeling more empowered in their own lives.
