My Approach to Helping
***I offer Tele-health therapy. During these uncertain times, people have noticed an increase in worry, stress and overall axniety. I offer therapy via phone or video***
I work with adults and teens who are struggling with anxiety, relationship problems and difficulties managing stress. I will help you find strength within and teach you tools so you can make the changes you need to feel better and lead a happy, healthy life. Let me start by saying I truly enjoy being a therapist. People seek out therapy for a variety of issues. There are times when we all need a little help. I am here to listen, help you build your strengths, build positive relationships and attain your personal goals, all in a safe environment. We will work together in a collaborative approach. I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused and Person Centered theories. Each person and problem is unique which is why my treatment is tailored to each individual, couple or family.
I specialize in Anxiety and people struggling with excessive worry and stress. This includes all types of anxiety disorders, including but not limited to, generalized anxiety, panic disorder and OCD. These things not only impact the person but can also cause problems in the relationships around you. I also specialize in couples and families.
I recognize how difficult it can be to seek out therapy especially when you are feeling vulnerable and overwhelmed. I encourage you to call me and ask any questions you have about therapy.
I’d be honored to work with you and help you in meeting your goals!
Give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to talking with you!
