I specialize in: Adjustment difficulties, family conflict, parenting difficulties, self-esteem and confidence, anxiety and stress, depressive disorders, grief and loss, trauma, behavioral problems, abuse and relationship problems.

My goal is to make challenging times easier. I utilize a client-centered approach, as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Exposure techniques. With my empathetic, non-judgmental and compassionate nature I can help you heal and feel heard again.
