Everybody goes through challenges in life. Some struggles are harder to overcome than others and require the assistance of a highly trained and compassionate therapist. My goal is to provide a comfortable, non-judgmental environment, in which to receive the support and treatment needed to get relieve from the symptoms that are bothering you most. I utilize a warm, empathic approach to form a strong therapeutic alliance and work collaboratively with my patients. My style is eclectic; incorporating person centered perspectives with components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness training. I am a generalist who specialized in the treatment of substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders, as well as depression, anxiety, mood disorders and trauma. I combine formal training in psychotherapy and psychological assessment with over two decades of practical treatment experience within the full continuum of behavioral health services. I am passionate about the work I do and have a strong commitment to helping others. Countless Americans suffer from mental health and emotional difficulties. It takes great strength and courage to focus on self-improvement. It is my belief that the treatment provided by professionals should be at the level that one would want for their own loved ones.
