About

Sometimes the events we experience in life can feel insurmountable and leave us feeling unable to cope. Although we cannot always change the course of events, we can change how we process and respond to distress. In conversation with you, I will make you feel comfortable and open enough to share your story and help you navigate moving forward.

My approach to therapy is short-term intervention (3-5 sessions) which will allow you to understand your specific circumstances, plan for change and execute new coping strategies. Having opportunities to work with clients in crisis intervention and ongoing solution-focused therapy, I've learned to help individuals discover their strengths and utilize existing supports to overcome distress.

I am an eager and engaged clinician who is motivated to work with you at all stages. Discussing your goals and hopes is something I look forward to exploring with you to make a meaningful change. If this is something you are wanting in your life, I encourage you to reach out to speak with me.
