At times life will leave you feeling stuck, unsure, and defeated. In a world that is fast pace and technologically driven it is often difficult to find the time slow down and become aware of the present moment. I’ve found that it helps to have someone to navigate life’s challenges with you.
The decision to enter therapy requires bravery and commitment, and I honor the strength required to take this step. I view the therapeutic relationship as two equals coming together to explore the events that brought you to your current state. I commit to providing a space for you that is safe, collaborative, and supportive. I believe in meeting the client right where they are and going at their pace. I recognize that effective therapy respects the individual’s beliefs and spiritual values. Therefore, I only ask that you bring your authentic self into the room.
I enjoy working with people to help them uncover patterns of behavior or thinking that were once functional and adaptive but now interfere with their personal growth. By addressing the underlying issues that are creating problems, we can create lasting change and transformation. I have experience working with children (ages 5+), adolescents, and adults. I welcome clients working through life issues including, but not limited to, depression, anxiety, identity formation, grief, relationship concerns, self-esteem, ADHD, and behavioral issues. In addition to individual therapy, I also offer couples and family therapy where we work to develop a functional system that serves the needs of all parties involved. Finally, I administer a variety of standard psychological assessments. Psychological assessments can provide answers for academic functioning, accommodations, ADHD diagnosis, and overall cognitive strengths and weaknesses.
The overall goal of our work is to gain insight and self-awareness in an effort to foster personal growth and positive change. Each client comes in with a narrative that has defined his/her life up until this point. It is my mission to help you change the narrative. If this is the type of environment you desire, I would be honored to take this journey with you.
