My passion has always been to help people alleviate symptoms that interfere with their quality of life in order to live a more fulfilling, purposeful and balanced life. To facilitate this process, I provide a warm and supportive environment with respectful and non-judgmental listening to your personal concerns. My style is active and goal-oriented, meaning that I ask thought provoking questions, use encouragement, and offer new perspectives and tools. I help guide clients through challenging situations to discover solutions to the issues that bring them to therapy.


Since each person’s situation is unique, my treatment approach is individualized depending on your particular needs and goals. I specialize in the use of cognitive and behavioral methods (CBT, DBT) that are research based and have scientific support for their effectiveness. I treat a wide variety of symptoms, with special expertise in Anxiety Disorders. I also have training in EMDR to heal trauma/PTSD.


I have provided therapy for the past 15 years and have witnessed the great courage it takes to be willing to look at our issues, seek some help, and gain new perspectives to heal. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to work with you or your loved ones as I view each relationship as an honor and privilege.
