Do you or your teen struggle with social anxiety, behaviors that impact your relationships, or frequent highs and lows in emotions? Do you want to live without racing thoughts, sleepless nights, or rocky relationships? If you or your child are feeling stuck and trapped by your anxiety, depression, or communication difficulties please reach out to me to develop a plan to feel better. I work with clients from adolescence through older adulthood to develop new coping skills, communicate more effectively, and to enjoy life more. I work with teens and their families as well as adults and couples. My approach to treatment is collaborative and incorporates the strengths and needs of the individual, couple, or family I am working with.I have advanced training in and specialize in utilizing three major evidence based therapy approaches: 1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Exposure and Response Prevention2. Dialectical Behavior Therapy 3. Emotion Focused Couples Therapy. I have over 12 years of experience working in inpatient crisis stabilization, community mental health centers; a university-based anxiety disorder clinic; and private practice settings. Currently I am working in a group practice setting three days a week in Land O‚Äô Lakes and one day a week in Brandon. I also participate in a weekly peer consultation group to ensure I am providing the best care possible to each of the clients and families I work with. I am passionate about the work I do and strive to incorporate the most up to date and evidence based approaches with everyone I work with in therapy. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to reach your goals.
