I have a high level of expertise working with people experiencing daily stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions and relationship difficulties. I specialize in working with young adults and utilize many Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused approaches.
Therapy does not need to be scary nor dull. My clients would say I come across as competent and compassionate. No one deserves to do life alone. I look forward to being on your team and tackling challenges together one step at a time.
