***Not currently accepting new clients***

I believe most people seeking professional therapy services have already made many attempts at addressing their issues and problems. Therapy can be an intimidating experience and the decision to seek therapy is a courageous one. My approach with my clients is collaborative, one that is client centered and strengths-based in an effort to find workable solutions, resolution, and hope. I utilize evidenced-based therapy frameworks such Cognitive/Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness based interventions and techniques. I can provide EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to assist clients in working through difficult life experiences, shift negative beliefs about themselves, and to build on their inner strengths.
