They come from different walks of life include military veterans, homemakers, people in the tech world, healthcare professionals, and folks in the entertainment industry. They struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, traumatic events, and grief.

My Background and Approach

My clients often describe me as warm, accepting, safe, emotionally supportive, and validating. My approach equips you with practical life skills. My curiosity drives me to understand the factors contributing to your current distress and how your past experiences may influence your present struggles. Together, we'll delve into your emotional patterns and personal history to foster self-understanding. This process will enable you to acquire the necessary tools and skills for self-compassion and develop more helpful perspectives of yourself and others. I offer flexibility by providing evening appointments, with availability ranging from 4 pm to 10 pm.

Why I Became a Therapist

It was though my own struggles with anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, and profound loss that I learned first hand the healing power of therapy. When I didn’t have to constantly fight worry, sadness, and self doubts I was able to open myself up to find my passion. I realized that my purpose is to help others to have a more fulfilling life. I went to graduate school and gained experience working at community outpatient clinics, a rape center, inpatient substance abuse treatment center, juvenile hall, a forensic psychiatric hospital, and VA medical centers. Thanks to finding the right therapist those many years ago, I've been able to create my best life by helping my clients realize that they are stronger than they, or anyone else, ever thought.
