Do you find that your mood or anxiety gets in the way or even consumes your day to day life? Have you been struggling to imagine a positive future for yourself? In the face of the current pandemic, it may seem difficult to prioritize our mental health with all the other practical problems we face on a daily basis, but the health of our mind may be our most valuable asset to managing our well being as we continue to face the challenges ahead. I offer a therapeutic environment that will allow you to explore these troubles and begin to develop a plan to getting your life back to the way you want it.

I work with young adults (18-40) who struggle with depression, anxiety, social phobia, agoraphobia, panic disorder and relationship issues. Although a diagnosis can be helpful, I prefer not to focus too heavily on it because it is far too simplistic. I enjoy getting to know each client and developing an individual relationship and treatment plan with them.

Through my experience I have done away with specific and rigid therapeutic models, and utilize a more open, relaxed and flexible approach. Therapy is very individual by nature and I find that building a trusting relationship is more valuable than any particular model. With trust and comfort comes a freer and more open dialogue, which makes exploration and change much easier. I take from a variety of modalities including CBT, mindfulness, psychodynamic, humanistic and existential psychology as part of my therapeutic approach.
