I believe therapy does not have to last a lifetime experience. However, the best benefit comes from allowing the process the time needed to achieve the outcomes aligned with healing and change. Therapy can serve as a road to achieve the wellness everyone deserves by breaking unhealthy patterns. As a therapist I provide a safe place for self discovery, to learn new skills, and receive non-judgmental support. I bring ten years of clinical care experience with family therapy, children/adolescents, and adults. I spent the first half of my career in community behavioral health working with individuals diagnosed with serious and persistent mental health challenges. I've worked both in outpatient and residential settings. Recent years my focus has been OCD, social anxiety, and phobias using ERP therapy which took place in a partial hospitalization setting. While my focus are the aforementioned diagnoses, I am available for clients struggling with depression, generalized anxiety, self-esteem, and life transitions.
Oh, and I am a proud cat mom who loves Law & Order SVU and is working to reduce her Pepsi intake.
