About My Clients

My clients are people who truly care. They care about their relationships with others. They want to become better partners, parents, friends, employees, sons/daughters, and community members. They want to experience more meaningful relationships and deeper connections. They want to feel ultimately understood, but may feel alone in their quest. While they may seem well-rounded and put together on the outside, they may feel that their inner lives do not truly reflect their public persona. ​

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I do more than just listen. I utilize scientific, proven techniques to help you gain tools to strengthen your mental fortitude. I will help you overcome the defeating thoughts that can lead to unhealthy actions and habits. I will help you feel more centered and calm, and to be more present. When we are truly present, we feel and see things with such clarity that we are no longer afraid, and we don’t feel the need to run away from those negative feelings. We are then truly in control of ourselves and free! I have extensive experience providing therapy for adults, couples, families, children, and adolescents.
