“It turns out life isn’t a puzzle that can be solved one time and it’s done. You wake up every day, and you solve it again.” – Chidi Anagonye, The Good Place.
Therapy is the most successful when the client and therapist are both working together to create positive change. As your partner in therapy, I provide honest and straightforward communication, an abundance of empathy, and compassionate education. I strive to foster an environment where you feel heard, validated, trusted, and empowered. No one should have to struggle alone, so let's work together to solve life's puzzles.
I use CBT and DBT techniques through a strengths-based and humanistic perspective. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I frequently work with high conflict families that are currently going through court litigations and throughout the following settlement. I also effectively and appropriately work alongside other professionals involved in legal cases.
I work with clients from ages to 5 to 70+. I am there as a support for you in all walks of life and wherever your road takes you.
