About Me

I am a warm, energetic, and caring psychotherapist that will work very hard with you to help resolve the problems and issues that have brought you to therapy. I feel very privileged to do the work that I do and strive to help individuals, couples, and families find more balance and harmony in their lives. I typically find ways to form strong therapeutic alliances with my clients–including difficult children and adolescents. I am genuinely interested in the people I work with and in their well-being.


I am a solution-focused therapist which means that I am focused on the positives and building upon your strengths. It is a positive, optimistic and nonjudgmental orientation.


I use a holistic approach to therapy–humans are physical, spiritual, psychological/cognitive, and emotional beings. A holistic approach considers how you are in all aspects of your life. I will work with your physician(s) and other treatment providers to ensure you receive coordinated and comprehensive health care.


Harm Reduction is an approach I utilize in many aspects of my work to reduce negative behavioral patterns and harmful habits while encouraging and building upon healthy behaviors and setting realistic, attainable goals. Goal-setting is always a collaborative effort.
