I believe everyone deserves to live a meaningful, fulfilling life, but challenging experiences can make that difficult at times. It takes bravery to reach out for help, so kudos for taking the first step! I treat individuals dealing with a variety of issues like depression, anxiety, grief, attachment issues, family issues, and relationship problems. I am Level 2 Gottman trained in couple's therapy which emphasizes the need to build or rebuild a relationship on the firm foundations of trust and commitment. I use directness with warmth and compassion to create a judgement free zone where you can be yourself and take off the "mask." While we will tackle tough issues, I also believe in making your experience as enjoyable as possible. My clients and I develop a good rapport and laughing is often part of our sessions.
Client-Centered therapy is the approach I use to come alongside you in navigating the difficulties in life. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness techniques to help you recognize how thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected. Even small changes in thinking can produce big results.
