We don’t always choose what happens to us but we do have a choice in how we respond to what happens. Therapy can assist in helping create healthy constructive responses that nurture growth and healing. I hope to create a safe, non-judgmental space in order for this to happen.

I have over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families. I have worked with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, parent/child conflict, eating disorders, codependency, life transitions, grief/loss, OCD, ADHD, and personality disorders. I incorporate faith as much or as little as my clients are comfortable with. I am also an EMDRIA trained clinician in EMDR and use that as an additional tool to help clients.
