I work with individuals who are ready to transform their mental health and wellbeing. Maybe you are trying to heal from the past, wanting to change your future, or learning to live in the present; maybe all three are true. Whatever your situation is, please know that change starts by taking the first step. I am here to help you take that step in creating the life you want and deserve! I work with individuals who are 15 years old and older.
I am an integrative therapist and shape each session pulling tools from my counseling toolbox to meet you where you are. I commonly use CBT, DBT, EMDR, and reality therapy techniques through a trauma-focused lens. I believe therapy is about you and the changes you want to make, so I use a client-centered approach to help you meet your goals.
