Many of us are spending much needed energy reacting to our emotions and letting them control our day to day life. Emotions are important, but they do not have to control you! I specialize in helping you learn to cope with overwhelming emotions, anxiety, and depression. I provide supportive counseling to adults and children experiencing anxiety, depression, and life challenges. I utilize a holistic approach to therapy with a variety of tools, including mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and educational tools to you discover your strengths and your ability to overcome obstacles you are facing. Setting an intention to live a life with less worry, anxiety, and frustration is powerful. Taking that first step to improving your mental health can be overwhelming, but can the be the start of a journey to a newer, better you.
