Therapy for Individuals, Couples & Families

Using regular helpings of humor, creativity and compassion, I work collaboratively with you to illuminate your inner world. Whatever the issues that need repair, we will co-create a treatment plan customized to your personal therapy goals. I use my extensive clinical experiences and specialized training to collaborate with my clients, drawing from various therapeutic modalities that will best serve your unique needs. We actively work together each therapy session to rediscover purpose, restore hope and reclaim joy. 
 
Here are some things you can expect out of therapy: 

  • Compassion, Respect, and Understanding
  • Transforming negative thoughts/behaviors to self-affirming ones that create joy
  • Effective tools and strategies for enacting positive change
  • An established treatment plan where each session moves you closer towards your goals
