I offer compassionate, individualized, solution-focused therapy in a calm, confidential environment. My career path includes teaching and administration in higher education, medical social work, and clinical private practice. I believe that effective change is created when the therapist and client are on the same team, striving toward the same goal. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy addresses negative thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors that interfere with the quality of life, and helps clients achieve inner peace. I have experience working with adolescents, young adults, and adults in individual or family sessions.
I specialize in depression, grief counseling, anxiety, caregiver support, young adults and teens, relationship issues, life adjustments, and substance use. By utilizing a mosaic therapeutic approach, I strive to empower my clients toward positive change.
Life can be difficult. We all need someone to help us explore and discover what is making us afraid, sad, anxious, or hopeless. I admire your courageous act to seek assistance and believe it is the first step to getting your life where you want it to be!
