About this Service

I know that finding the right therapist can be hard. I strive to provide you with a positive and relaxed therapy experience through active listening, empathy, support and respect. Together, we will explore only the issues that you feel are important to your personal mental health journey. We’ll find effective coping skills that you can use in your everyday life to better manage negative thoughts and upsetting emotions. I want you to be able to end each therapy session feeling supported, heard, and more confident and empowered to take control of whatever stressors life is throwing at you right now.

I am actively licensed in the United States as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Counseling. I have 12 years of experience in the mental health field and am in my late 30’s. I have worked in a wide array of diverse behavioral health settings, including outpatient, residential, academic settings, and most recently in a behavioral health hospital and psychiatric emergency department. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and with a variety of diagnoses and diagnosis, including mood & anxiety disorders, substance abuse, personality disorders, trauma and abuse, and supporting parents of kids and teens with developmental delays and autism, to name a few. I am also open to both secular counseling or counseling from a religious or spiritual perspective.

I primarily utilize a cognitive-behavioral and person-centered approach to therapy, meaning that I aim to help you find your own solutions by examining how our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are interconnected. I seek to create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment where you maintain control of what is discussed, what goals are identified, and also what therapy approaches are utilized. In addition, I want to help find healthy coping strategies that will work best for you personally: this might include how to stop the constant loop of negative thoughts often associated with depression and anxiety, or identifying ways to gain increased confidence around others and stop self-loathing, for instance. I also commonly utilize Narrative therapy, DBT (if needed), EFT, and ACT therapy, which are dependent on the individual’s personal needs and what counseling approach will benefit them best therapeutically.

I assure you that your sessions will be confidential and in compliance with the ethical standards set forth by the American Counseling Association. I would be honored to work with you during this important time in your life!
