I help my clients rebalance their lives and find ways to connect with the people and passions that defined them. Together, we will develop new ways to react to life’s challenges. We’ll practice tools that can help you feel grounded, confident, and more in control. Our work together can help you get unstuck and on a path toward a life you love living.
My clients describe me as authentic, interactive, and compassionate. I am trained in several approaches (CBT, DBT, EMDR, ACT, and Mindfulness) that can create new insights about your feelings, thinking patterns, and behaviors. Our sessions will provide the calm escape that you desperately need and an improved quality of life you deserve.

I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, advocate for racial justice/equity, and support people in recovery. I have special interest in working with stress and anxiety, serious mental illness, and trauma.
There are times we need help dealing with tough circumstances or personal challenges. My approach in treatment is to work together with my clients to understand their particular needs, strengths, life ambitions, and obstacles to progress. I am experienced working with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, addiction, grief and loss, and other life events. My work with clients is collaborative and focused on finding solutions to meet their needs. I incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities (acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, and solution focused therapy) to assist clients in reaching their goals. Together we will develop a more meaningful and enjoyable life.

Please reach us at email@example.com if you cannot find an answer to your question.
You can schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation and we will reach out to you. The purpose of the consultation is for you to discuss your concerns and ask any questions about therapy. We will link you with a good fit for a therapist in our practice and schedule an appointment or offer referrals to practices to suit your needs. After setting up your appointment, you will receive your initial paperwork electronically through a client portal to complete 48 hours before your first appointment.
We want to give you what you need in the shortest timeframe, and we are here for you long-term. The majority of our clients see progress within a few short months. Therapy often starts on a weekly basis and decreases in frequency over time.
While we schedule most of our appointments in the mornings and early afternoons, we do have some evening slots available. They typically book up weeks in advance, so if you have any flexibility in your schedule, we can fit you in much sooner.
We do not offer on-call services. We urge our clients to contact 911 or their nearest emergency room in the event of an emergency/crisis. Current clients are welcome to leave their provider a voicemail message to request a check- in prior to their next session if needed. Our policy states that we will return your message within 48 hours. In order to protect your privacy and for the purpose of healthy client-therapist boundaries, we do not do text messaging and do not email advice or have clinical discussion via e-mail.
