Bio

Do you often feel weighed down by feelings of stress, anxiety or depression? Are overwhelming emotions, thoughts, and behaviors interfering with your daily functioning or relationships? Perhaps you were diagnosed with a serious disease/illness, struggling with grief and loss, or suffering from chronic pain? Sometimes life can be overwhelming to the point that you feel stuck or you find it difficult to cope.

I am here to help you address a range of issues, overcome obstacles, and embrace a new journey of growth and healing. I offer a warm, empathetic, non-judgmental approach in a safe environment for you to share your innermost thoughts and feelings that are consuming your mind. You will learn new ways to manage challenging emotions and complex thought-processes, adjust to life changes, improve connections with others, and learn other tools to help achieve better mental and emotional well-being. I am passionate about helping others by creating a therapeutic alliance with my clients to offer support and work collaboratively to create goals unique to their needs to improve their quality of life and help restore functioning.

I have five years of clinical experience supporting adults to reduce emotional stress and symptoms resulting from challenging life experiences. I have worked in multiple settings: in private practice I have worked with individuals with depression, anxiety, anger/mood issues, and low self-esteem; in Community Mental Health I have provided case management and psychotherapy with older adults with severe and persistent mental illness such as depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar with medical comorbidity; in medical settings, including a veterinary hospital in which I worked with end of life issues and facilitated a pet grief/loss support group; as well as a Family Reunification Program and substance abuse treatment, both with individuals and groups.
