"Making the decision to come to therapy is a brave and empowering step forward. By the time you take this step you are likely experiencing emotional pain. I’ll meet you where you are. Together we’ll take a collaborative approach to getting you ready to make the changes you want and need. Even small changes can seem daunting. We’ll break it down and take a pace that’s comfortable for you.

I have experience working with adults who are challenged by anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, trauma reactions and other chronic conditions such as pain and illness. I am dedicated to helping my clients overcome limiting beliefs and challenging past experiences.

I specialize in taking a mindfulness based approach to psychotherapy and combine this approach with education, CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), EFT (emotional freedom technique) and skill teaching for better self-care. These are methods that are proven to encourage healing and empowerment. Together we’ll tailor these interventions to your preferences and needs.

You have the power within you to gain mastery over your emotional and physical experience. Please call and make an appointment today. Let’s work together to build a life worth living for!”
