For many people struggling with their mental health, daily life has become a struggle in one or more areas of their life. Whether it’s managing symptoms related to their diagnosis, stress from work, problems with their relationships with family or friends, struggles with their spouse or partner, grief from a loss in their life, problems functioning effectively in school, difficulties with substance use, managing trauma from their past, or many other concerns we deal with everyday. I strongly believe seeking counseling can have a tremendous, positive impact towards living a better and more fulfilling life.

Over the course of my career, I have had a variety of experience working with individuals, couples, families, children, adolescents, adults, older adults. I have provided therapy services in outpatient, inpatient, residential and community settings. I’ve had success in treating individuals diagnosed with a variety of disorders, some of which include, Major Depressive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, ADHD, Substance Use/Alcohol Use Disorders, PTSD and Schizophrenia. I believe in taking a Client-Centered approach, along with using Cognitive Behavioral techniques and other evidence-based practices to help a person reach his or her goals in therapy.
