Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, MS, BA


Are you feeling overwhelmed by communication barriers, anxiety, or struggling with low self-esteem? You’re not alone, and I’m here to help.

I specialize in working with adults and adolescents, both individuals and couples, who are facing challenges in these areas. Whether you’re finding it difficult to express yourself effectively, grappling with overwhelming anxiety, or wrestling with feelings of inadequacy, I provide a supportive and understanding space for you to explore and overcome these obstacles.

Communication issues can strain relationships and exacerbate feelings of isolation and frustration. Through tailored therapy sessions, I help individuals and couples develop healthier communication patterns, fostering understanding, empathy, and connection. Anxiety can be crippling, impacting various aspects of your life—from work to relationships to personal fulfillment. Using evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness, I empower my clients to manage their anxiety effectively, reclaiming control over their thoughts and behaviors.

Low self-esteem can sabotage your relationships, career aspirations, and overall well-being. Together, we’ll uncover the underlying beliefs and patterns contributing to your low self-esteem, and I’ll provide you with practical strategies and support to cultivate a more positive self-image and sense of worth.

As a therapist, my goal is to create a warm, trusting, and non-judgmental environment where you feel heard, understood, and empowered to make meaningful changes in your life. I prioritize building a strong therapeutic alliance based on trust and respect, providing a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences without fear of judgment.

As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, my areas of focus include:
Relational issues | Couples Therapy | Anxiety issues for teens and adults | Childhood trauma

If you’re ready to get started, I always offer a 15-minute consultation to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to the opportunity to support you or a member of your family on your journey towards healing and personal growth.

“One day at a time.” This quote reminds me of the importance of focusing on the present moment and taking small steps toward progress, which can bring a sense of calm and clarity even in the midst of challenges.
