*Currently accepting new clients; Next day/some same day appointments available, evening and some Saturday appointments* I am a client centered therapist with experience working with children, adolescents, families, and adults. My goal is to collaborate with you to create a plan that fits your needs. I strive to create a therapeutic space that is safe, secure, and supportive to help encourage growth and change. As a therapist, I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a 'one-size fits all approach' - everyone deserves respect, compassion, and a therapy plan customized to their unique history and concerns.

I believe therapy should be individualized based on each person’s specific needs. My ultimate goal is to empower my clients to change what can be changed and to identify appropriate coping skills to what cannot be changed. I do this by creating a safe, client-centered therapeutic environment that allows the client to identify their individual goals. I believe each person is the ultimate expert in their own lives and I am there to assist them in achieving their personal goals.

Do you experience significant emotional distress when being introduced to other people, being teased or criticized, being the center of attention, being watched while doing something, or meeting people of authority? Have you been told you are a perfectionist? Are you stuck at a job because you fear change or you believe you aren't good enough for something better? This list is certainly not a complete list but these feelings have all been associated with anxiety. Physiological symptoms also accompany social anxiety/anxiety and may include intense fear, racing heartbeat, turning red, and excessive sweating.

I am currently accepting new clients on Saturdays at the Johnston location. I bring a client-centered, integrative approach to my counseling relationships which allows for tailoring to each client's need. Creating a safe, supportive, and caring therapeutic relationship, I value and seek to understand my client's personal and cultural identities. It is my belief that our early life experiences and relationships play an important role in how we experience ourselves and others. Counseling can help clients develop a greater understanding of self and cultivate helpful ways of coping.
