Your journey is important to me. It is an honor to witness who you are, to be with you through your growth, and work towards your personal goals. Often in more challenging times, we can get discouraged, uncertain, or live with grief, heartache or pain. For whatever brings you through our door, I hope to be of service to you. In our therapy work together, we will explore your strengths, resources, and sense of self-effacacy and use them as tools to bring you to a sense of well being and/or feelings of improvement.


I work with all groups (children, adolescents, adults, and older adults) and backgrounds. I like to use different modalities of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialetical Behavioral Therapy.
