Helping You Have the Audacity to Be Yourself


Lets be honest...you only want to know three things:

Am I an expert?
Will I help you?
Will you feel better?

The short answer is YES.
And I'm willing to put in the work if you are. Keep reading for the long answer.

Am I an expert?

I know pressure.
The pressure to be strong. The pressure to be right. The pressure to excel.
That (sometimes) subtle encouragement to conform and change your attitudes and beliefs to fit those around you. I know how this pressure can be motivational, exhausting, consuming, perhaps daunting. I know this pressure creates anxiety and depression. I also know ways to cope.

I understand the pressures of other people’s expectations and how to navigate those minefields. Most importantly… I know what it’s like being everything to everyone...even when you don't want to.

I’m the expert on Anxiety and Stress Management, you’re the expert on you. 


Helping others with the overthinking, worry, and constant second guessing of anxiety has become a passion. I get it (more than you'll probably believe) and am committed to helping you understand and manage your anxiety. I've studied long and hard to understand how anxiety functions, how many attempts to relieve anxiety can make it worse, and what can actually get you the relief you seek. As a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Provider, I aim to help you relieve the physical and thought based effects of anxiety so that you may live a rich, full, and meaningful life.

Substance Abuse 

Substance Use often develops from attempts to cope with life's stressors such as anxiety. Specialized certification allows me to use specialized training to treat those experiencing difficulty with substance as well as educate entire families about substance abuse. It is important to process the effects of substance use disorders in a non-judgmental environment and that's the way I like it best. I help you get to recognize the origins of the behavior, its manifestations, and more specifically how to overcome those behaviors.

DBT and Anxiety

I have completed a post-masters intensive in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) under the instruction of certified DBT trainer Dr. Michael Maslar. DBT is a cognitive behavioral treatment developed by Marsha Linehan to treat Borderline Personality Disorder which has since demonstrated effectiveness in the treatment of a trauma and host of stress related disorders. In practice, DBT can be utilized to improve focus, decrease anxiety and stabilize mood and emotional understanding.

EMDR Trained

I also offer EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) as powerful therapeutic approach for you to process and integrate difficult memories. This approach enables individuals to process distressing memories and reframe negative beliefs, fostering resilience and growth.

As an EMDRIA trained EMDR therapist, I specialize in addressing trauma, anxiety, and other emotional challenges that may be hindering your well-being. Through EMDR, I facilitate a process that enables you to reprocess distressing memories, fostering adaptive resolutions and promoting emotional well-being. My goal is to empower you to overcome obstacles and rediscover a sense of balance and joy in your life while unlocking the potential for profound healing and lasting positive change.

Regardless of the type of therapy we use, my personalized approach is tailored to meet your unique needs, ensuring a collaborative and empowering therapeutic experience.

Will I help you?

I want you to understand who you currently are and the person you would like to become. Once you have this knowledge and acceptance the possibilities are triple in size. Therapy is about you and your needs. My focus is improvement; not diagnosis, not blame.

The most helpful therapy is therapy focused on individual needs. Services may be different for every client because services focus on YOU! The individual. Not a cookie cutter formula.

My assumption is that everyone strives to reach his or her full potential. By understanding that you are doing the best you can with what you have today we can embrace acceptance, get unstuck, and move forward towards your best self. 

My role as your counselor is to help you identify unconscious and unintentional thoughts or behaviors that interfere with you ability to reach you full potential. It is my role as a person to relate to your experience and  encourage you to go for your goals. I will help you implement strategies to endorse change. I believe that change is inevitable and when embraced, change can be empowering and motivational. It is my goal to use unconditional positive regard, compassion, and care to help facilitate change.​

Change IS possible.

Will You Feel Better?

While I can't guarantee what will happen, what I know is that by working together your goals can be met. Therapy is a process and is a very different process for each person. This however is a gift. It is an opportunity for you to influence your path. An opportunity to promote positive change through a new perspective and insight. Growth requires a commitment. COMMITMENT GETS RESULTS. Those results make you feel better. Clients who have committed to work with me report an improved quality of life, increased sense of self, and intensified life satisfaction. Are you ready to do what it takes?

While I'm an expert on the strategies and skills, you are the expert on you.
Together we shape your Journey to Your Best You.
