As a licensed therapist, I partner with people experiencing depression, anxiety, addiction related coping and life transitions to identify and reach their goals. I am dedicated to serving the needs of the LGBTQ+ and broader community and am committed to creating a safe, accepting and supportive environment for those I partner with. My therapeutic style is warm, open and judgement free. My approach is solution focused, tapping into Cognitive Behavioral and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy modalities, incorporating daily mindfulness practices for every lifestyle . Reaching out to partner with a counselor is a powerful step toward changing your life experience. Let's talk more and identify how our work together will help point you in the direction of your path.
