Life can be difficult and comes with many challenges. From the major roadblocks to the minor bumps in the road, I will meet you where you are. I believe therapy should be a collaborative approach between therapist and client and I will work with you to ensure a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable therapeutic environment. In using Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused techniques my goal is to empower clients to use their strengths to develop solutions to life's challenges while supporting and guiding them through the process.
