THERAPIST

I specialize in working with individuals, couples and families that experience depression, anxiety, emotional disturbance, difficulties with anger and more. I believe developing a strong relationship with a therapist that understands your specific situation can provide a solid foundation for you to self-reflect and gain insight to make meaningful changes to improve your daily life. My approach involves  meeting clients where they are and focusing on the presenting problems that are preventing you from living your best life.
