Reaching out for help can be scary, and my job is to make the process as easy for you as possible. I believe that individuals have the capacity to make positive changes in their life, and I'm here to help facilitate those changes and strive for better outcomes. I enjoy utilizing an individualized approach, taking into account the unique experiences that have shaped each client. I strive to direct my practice according to your specific needs and goals, and always view a client as a whole person, not just a list of symptoms. I aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for my clients so that they can focus on getting better. For me, the greatest reward of providing therapy is seeing clients embrace their best selves and live life with more control over their emotions and behaviors.
