I have worked in mental health and substance abuse field since 2005. I enjoy working with individuals including adults, adolescents and children.
My clinical focus is centered around those that have concerns with anxiety, depression, sexual aggression and substance use. My therapeutic orientation is psychodynamic which includes aspects of Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral, Solution Focused and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I tailor to the needs of each individual client.
I strive to incorporate my knowledge and clinical practice experience into my work with clients. My belief is that our experiences early in life shape how we learn to manage challenges and can often impact our lives well into adulthood. My goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for my clients. I look forward to working with you.
