A straightforward approach is necessary in order to promote lasting change. My goal as your therapist is to create a comfortable environment for you to identify and express your thoughts and feelings. I have worked in the mental health field for 15+ years, and with my knowledge and experience I will help guide you to the solutions you need in a direct, genuine, and empathetic way. I utilize a variety of approaches supplemented by training in EMDR, CBT, and DBT to assist you in developing your strengths and working through your challenges.
I enjoy working with adults and children ages 16 and up. I specialize in working with clients who are experiencing anxiety, mood disorders, the impacts of trauma, and other life transitions. I am a kink aware, and sex positive therapist who maintains an open-minded approach. I am supportive of traditional, and non-traditional relationships.
Many people find reaching out to a therapist an anxiety provoking experience. I do my best to make you feel at ease, and to streamline the process to be as low-key as possible. If talking on the phone is difficult (or just inconvenient), email is a great way to reach me. No hoops to jump through, no messing around, just to-the-point solutions.
