I provide individual therapy for adolescents and adults, relationship therapy, and family therapy. I am dedicated to working with wide range of individuals and concerns. I have extensive experience and a passion for working with substance users and their loved ones, individuals living with chronic illness or pain, adolescents/young adults, couples, mindfulness, and creative thinkers.
HARM REDUCTION PSYCHOTHERAPY
I offer harm reduction psychotherapy to individuals or couples impacted by substance use/misuse. I approach conversations about drug and alcohol use without judgment and do not assume abstinence is the goal. I can support you and/or your relationship in creating a healthy and balanced connection with alcohol or drugs.

TEEN AND FAMILY THERAPY
My work with teens is focused on being approachable, empathic, and client centered. I aim to create a space for the young person to feel like they can talk without being judged and that is separate from their family. Ideally, I can create a confidential space so they can share their experiences without worry of impacting their family and friends. I can incorporate family therapy if desired and this can be done in various ways depending on the family’s needs.

I work with individuals who want to increase self-awareness and cultivate a fulfilling life. I take into account how various aspects of your identity influence your daily life and incorporate this into how we look at your healing. I will focus on building upon your strengths through the use of reflections, interpretations, and problem solving.
I work with people in various relationship formations who feel stuck in harmful communication patterns. I support relationships in developing a present moment awareness of distressing communication patterns and using this information to cultivate strategies aimed at increasing feeling understood and validated by each other.
