With the modern world comes modern problems. Do you feel your problems aren’t valid? They are. Current life stressors on top of unresolved issues, no matter how minor they may seem, often lead to anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, and unhealthy, self-destructive habits including substance abuse, behavioral addictions, and even mental health conditions. My mission is to provide support and validation as well as teach skills for gaining traction in life so you can become your best self and build a life you want to live.
I understand ways to manage modern stressors for a more effective and fulfilling life. I believe that to truly thrive, we must take care of both body and mind. I emphasize this mind-body connection in my practice. As your therapist, my goal is to create a genuine, professional relationship between us so you feel comfortable exploring your feelings.
During our sessions, I will use a person-centered approach. This means I consider us partners in planning, developing, and monitoring your care to make sure that your needs are being met. You are the expert in your own life, but I look forward to supporting you during your journey of self-discovery and self-care.
