Are you feeling unsafe, overwhelmed, or sad? Are you making changes to your life and need support, validation, and understanding? If so, you're not alone. Life is filled with challenges, and can become overwhelming, hectic, or confusing at times. The goal of therapy is to support you and help you to navigate your problems and concerns. Please allow me to help you learn coping strategies that empower you to gain a more positive outlook on your life.

If you are ready to take steps towards changing how you feel and interact with your world, then I am here to support you on your journey. You may feel that something is off, your life is not headed in the direction you want it to go in, or you are stuck or overwhelmed. All of my interventions are client-centered. Primary treatment models include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Together, we will explore ways to get you past barriers so you can feel fulfilled and in control of your life. I will help you find your strength, your direction, and your peace.

We all lead busy lives and it can be difficult to get to appointments. For that reason, I offer therapy sessions online to current and new clients. Some of your insurance plans will cover the sessions, so it is important to contact your plan for information. For those without insurance coverage, out-of-pocket rates begin at $120.  All you need is a strong internet connection, a computer, tablet or smartphone with a working camera and microphone in order to participate in the session.
