“If the problem can be solved why worry? If the problem cannot be solved- worrying will do you no good.”
For the last five years my experience has involved providing mental health services to adults, children, teens and families. As a counselor my goal is to support you through the unexpected that life has placed in front of you- the challenges that you find yourself facing.
As an adult you may be unexpectedly dealing with a difficult loss, working through prior trauma or manage overwhelming anxiety or depression. Life can feel beyond stressful and at times- incredibly cruel. We are social creatures- there is no reason for us to face these hurdles alone. I view therapy as one tool at our disposal for healing- I believe that social connection, exercise, expressive activities such as dance and yoga, reiki, spirituality and involvement in one's community play a crucial part in healing as well.
I use an evidence-based approach to understand your story and support you through what you are working to overcome. This approach is strength-based and includes elements of family systems, ACT, DBT, CBT, mindfulness and expressive therapies. I focus on a growth mindset and take a holistic approach opposed to focusing solely on reduction of symptoms.
