In a world where we focus on building strong physical health, solid educational backgrounds and financial fitness, our emotional health and relationships may not always take precedence. However, I believe mental health is just as important. Whether you’re looking to improve your relationships, emotional wellbeing, or seek help with specific challenges, therapy is a great place to start. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist,

I have direct training and experience working with family and relationship issues, as well as working with individuals.

I also specialize in treating Stress/Anxiety, Depression and Substance Abuse, as well as self-esteem issues and general self-improvement goals. My approach is compassionate and interactive, focusing on tailoring and personalizing therapy to you, while providing support and feedback so that you reach your goals.

Sessions may include collaboratively identifying the root cause of struggles, building on current strengths, finding effective communication/coping/conflict management skills, and guiding healthy emotional expression. It can be hard deciding who to trust and I appreciate your consideration.
