About My Clients

Have you been looking for a way to make a change in your life, but not sure how to do it? Maybe you're worried that making this change will impact your life in a way you're not entirely comfortable? But internally you know the sadness, anxiety, depression, worry and fears have become overwhelming. Maybe you've tried on your own but feel you need some extra help to be successful. You can learn to change your thoughts, emotions and behaviors to get there. You are capable of change.

My Background and Approach

In a judgement free & private zone I will work with you to help you envision what it is you want for yourself & assist you with achieving that goal. I use several different treatment methods to find what you feel is most effective for yourself. Therapy is not one size fits all! I believe its important to remember that. Since 2010 I have worked with adolescents & adults to help overcome trauma, substance use, anxiety, depression, grief & co-occurring disorders. I will work with you to encourage self-empowerment to make the changes needed in your life to become a happier and healthier version of yourself. Over time, we will work to diminish and overcome your triggers through a variety of coping skills so you can feel better than you have before.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There is no doubt in my mind that any and everyone has the capability to change their lives. There is no limit on success when someone begins to believe they can achieve what they want in life. I know this is not an easy task, and at times may even seem impossible, but I have seen this change happen time and time again. I know that you may feel different, and like every patient, you ARE different. But different is not bad. At times, society places us in boxes to make us believe what we deserve in life is defined by our past behaviors or experiences. But your past does NOT need to define you. You write your story & I believe regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, financial status, housing situation, legal history, substance use history etc. that everyone is capable of better things with the right support system.
