My area of specialty is working with college students and young professionals struggling with life transitions, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, low self esteem, lack of motivation, communication skills, and stress management. It is easy to forget how to cope when faced with challenging circumstances. However, I believe it is in our human nature to be resilient and get back on track with the right support. My goal is to support you and provide you with the tools that you can utilize to create the happy and healthy lifestyle that fits you.
People are drawn to counseling when they feel stuck, are lost, personally struggling, and in the process of wanting to make a change. We all need the right kind of support at various times in our life. My approach to counseling is humanistic and person centered. I utilize evidence based techniques that are strongly grounded in cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. I believe in a collaborative therapeutic relationship and join you in exploring your personal goals, shed light on your strengths, gain insight, empower you, and work around challenges that are holding you back. It is so rewarding seeing the change and personal growth in my clients when they are open to the process and ready. I am down to earth and provide a safe, non-judgmental, direct, and warm space for my clients.
My background consists of working in diverse professional settings including psychiatric hospitals, outpatient private practices, and addiction treatment facilities. I have extensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness. I am committed to ongoing continuing education that will give me the tools to support my client’s growth and development.
Ready to take the next step:
