Are you feeling sad, anxious, or have little to zero energy? Are you wondering if you have an addiction or if you’re drinking too much? I can help you process the struggles of addiction, depression, anxiety, life purpose/identity and help you find hope. I would love to help you sort out your struggles and see if there are roadblocks keeping you from finding your true potential. My therapeutic specialties include addiction/process addictions such as compulsive gambling, sex, internet, and shopping. I also treat depression, anxiety, relationship conflicts, identity/purpose concerns and trauma. I have a special clinical focus working with professionals in trauma exposure jobs (e.g., police, fire fighters, doctors, nurses, therapists, veterinarians, and therapists) and addressing subsequent burnout and vicarious trauma. Working with college students and parents with children who have special needs is an area of my expertise. Finally, I offer an Anger Management track (particularly, for those suffering from social anxiety) and this entails individual therapy sessions with a minimum 8 session commitment. This may be accepted by probation and the courts if there is a court order. This therapy track is CBT and Criminal-Thinking focused. I use an integrative therapeutic approach including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered, Non-Violent Communication (NVC) and Trauma Informed care.

As a mental health therapist, I work with clients who want to find meaning, identity, and discover a life worth living. Each of us has the ability to recognize our strengths and use them as a strong foundation for recovery and change. I believe therapy is most effective within a caring and non-judgmental environment, and building a strong therapeutic relationship is a key component to recovery and change. I have special interests in working with those with eating disorders, body image, substance abuse, mood disorders, relationship concerns, self-esteem, spiritual struggles, and life calling. Other areas of therapy include anxiety, depression, OCD, body image issues, mindfulness, nutrition, athletes, self-identity, and other co-occurring mental health disorders. I use an integrative therapeutic approach utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, solution-focused, and strengths-based techniques.
