I have always had a passion for helping others. My hope now as a therapist is to help provide support by developing a genuine therapeutic relationship built on a foundation of encouragement and collaboration with unconditional, positive support. My goal is to provide a warm and trusting environment for you to explore and share your thoughts and feelings. I work on issues associated with depression, anxiety, stress, grief, life transitions, relationship issues, and assertiveness training. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults. I value my work with older adults and families struggling with issues often associated with aging, which often include caregiver stress and the resulting level of caregiver burnout.
My approach involves working with clients through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which is both goal and action-oriented. I also like to incorporate mindfulness-based practices, as well as other stress relief exercises. However, I believe each situation and individual is unique, and it is incumbent upon me to meet my clients at their place of need. I work with clients to identify and address the successes and challenges in their lives and how their behaviors and thoughts might be contributing to the area of concern. Together we will develop coping skills and strategies and relaxation techniques that help support and address the identified problem areas, resulting in a meaningful life and more positive relationships.
