Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Chances are, other people in your life have already given you a lot of advice. "Do this, don't do that." It's not always that simple. As humans, we all struggle at some point. I love helping people develop a deep sense of confidence in who they are as they learn to handle what's holding them back.

Attachment theory is all about love and safety. How we experience that from an early age influences the coping skills we develop for all of our relationships, especially during times of conflict and struggle. I love that we can change how we feel about ourselves, our relationships and the world at large through the context of new, safe, reparative experiences.
As humans, we are wired to connect. When our connections confuse or hurt us, we suffer. But it doesn't have to end there. By learning our individual and relationship patterns, we can turn our hurt into a chance for even deeper, more resilient relationships. Through emotion-focused therapy, we can learn to change the dynamics between us without assigning blame or stonewalling.
Surviving trauma is one thing; living the life you deserve after trauma is another. It takes a compassionate, centered, experienced clinician to guide you through that tough terrain. I help trauma survivors understand the past and develop coping skills to live life on today's terms.
Anxiety is misery. Whether it's pervasive or situation-specific, anxiety sucks the spark from life. In my work with people with anxiety, I use cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and acceptance and commitment therapy to build skills and awareness around their triggers and symptoms. Because life doesn't have to feel this way.
People who have depression are some of the hardest-working people around; seemingly simple acts require huge effort. Using CBT, mindfulness, and interpersonal process, I have helped people lighten the burden of depression related to grief, addiction, chemical imbalances, life circumstances and more.
