Why Therapy, Why Me?

Much like the way we endure pain and injury throughout our bodies, our brains are also susceptible to pain. I like to refer to mental illness and addiction as a sort of "brain pain". I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding and encourage people to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. It is imperative to keep in mind that therapy is NOT a magic pill or some quick fix! Therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and commitment from all involved. Most importantly, therapy is hard work! By making changes to self-defeating behaviors, negative thinking patterns, and self-destructive actions, AND learning to cope with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain, you will begin to notice life-altering results.

I am a mental health counselor with experience in working with adolescents and adults. My specialty areas include helping people affected by trauma, anxiety, mood disorders, and addiction. Much of my current work involves working with young adults facing transitional periods in their lives and developing the interpersonal skills they need to navigate these times with confidence.

I am trained in Eye Movement Rapid Desensitization (EMDR) therapy, and use this work to treat individuals with trauma, substance use disorders, and anxiety disorders. I am a firm believer in meeting people where they are at... tailoring treatment by using creative and integrative treatment that will help you reclaim your life.
