I believe everyone has an inner drive to become a better version of themselves, but maladaptive patterns prevent us from growing. I am trained in using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques to help address negative thinking, maladaptive behaviors, and open the path to healing.

Our family and upbringing have a massive impact throughout our lives and relationships. Nearly all families experience dysfunction at some point, which family therapy can help to address. I have worked with different types of families from single parents, adoption and fostering, to the traditional nuclear family.
I am passionate about issues in the LGBTQ community and have taken courses in gender and sexuality. I specialize in adolescent and teen LGBTQ issues such as orientation, gender expression and gender roles, transitioning, and the coming out process.
The focus of my degree was in using systemic therapy, meaning I look at how our relationships function and effect us. The earliest relationships we have with our families are a blueprint for how we interact with the world, especially with our partner. If you're feeling disconnected, learning how to resolve conflict and communicate can revive the spark in your relationship!
Anxiety is a natural, biological response to stress, and it's our body's way of protecting us. But when we become overwhelmed by anxious thoughts it can disrupt our relationships and career. If you're experiencing panic attacks, stress, OCD, PTSD, or phobias, don't let it control you enjoying your life. I use a mix of evidence-based treatments including CBT, mindfulness techniques, and exposure.
