About My Clients

Whether you're struggling with substance abuse, working to maintain recovery, facing difficult life transitions, or experiencing depression and anxiety; I will support you. I have 4 years of experience working with substance abuse and medicated assisted treatment clients. My goal is to be your sounding board and aid in your pursuit of a healthier life. I hope that through our time together you can learn to be your own therapist and work through issues as they come.

My Background and Approach

As you think about finding a therapist, I want you to remember that everyone needs help from time to time. Together, we will explore and identify what new coping skills and resources we can draw upon to help you navigate any challenge you come across. We will develop a plan together based on your personal strengths and experiences in order to help you become your best self. My therapeutic style is rooted in the strengths perspective, self empowerment, and cognitive behavioral therapy. If you are spiritual or religious I am able to incorporate this in our time as well! I am currently private pay only but do not want finances to get in the way of getting help. Sliding fee scale is available as needed.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that all people have the ability to change, grow, and take control of their lives. Each individual is worthy of love and deserve to know and understand their self worth. Through my work with those struggling with substance abuse I have come to see that success does not come easily but that it is possible. I offer a judgement free space in which you are safe to share your story without fear or shame.
