The idea of therapy might seem like a daunting or even dreadful experience, especially if you already have so much on your plate. You might be juggling a lot right now- school and/or work, family, friends, and relationships while simultaneously feeling lost, unmotivated, exhausted and overwhelmed. Feelings of anxiety and depression might even feel like the norm, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
I provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental environment and use evidence-based treatment methods to help you take on life’s challenges. I also believe that having fun and bringing humor into our work is important so that therapy doesn’t feel like another stressor on your plate! I want you to enjoy this process and have fun learning ways to make meaningful and lasting change in your life.
I have had the privilege to work with a variety of individuals of different ages and from all walks of life over the last 15 years. I specialize in working with individuals struggling with depression, low self-esteem, life transitions, general worries, social anxiety, and relationship concerns.
In the course of our work together, I will help you identify the aspects in your life that are causing you to feel anxious, depressed, overwhelmed and even hopeless. Together, we will collaborate to find effective strategies that will work for your specific concerns, and you will have an opportunity to practice these skills and strategies outside of session in order to get the most from our time together. My hope is to assist you in making the type of changes that will create a new healthier and happier norm!
