Support That Makes a Difference

I help people struggling with their mental health or substance use find the best path forward. Just like the strength of Redwood Trees comes from their roots that intertwine with one another, my collaborative approach shines a light on the strength and resilience every individual has within them.

Welcome to my practice

I am a licensed clinical therapist with 15 years of experience working with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, substance use concerns and other behavioral addictions. If you have found me, you are likely feeling stagnant with your goals and not seeing the progress you would like, or you may be questioning your relationship with alcohol or other substances. Perhaps you are feeling anxious and depressed or struggling with a relationship or with self-esteem issues. Many people at times face one or more of these challenges and find they are having trouble managing these issues on their own. This is where the support of a therapist like myself can be helpful to increase coping, decrease negative symptoms and improve the quality of your life.

Strength and resilience are things that I see in everyone I work with even if it is not readily apparent to you in the moment. With a strengths-based perspective and a collaborative approach, I can help you tap into your resiliency as we work together to identify your goals and develop the best plan for treatment. I believe therapy is most effective in the context of a trusting relationship, which is why I focus on building a real connection without judgment. Healing, growth and change are things I believe everyone has the capacity to find over time with the right tools and support.

I specialize in anxiety, depression and substance use. Modalities used in my practice are:

  • CBT
  • ACT
  • Mindfulness
  • Supportive
  • Insight oriented
  • Motivational interviewing
