Therapy for Adults

In my work with adults, I provide solutions for generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, borderline personality disorder, depression, and nonbinary & transgender affirming therapy.

As an adult, you don't always have the answers to increase your happiness. Therapy can help you to open up new areas of growth and inspire you to move forward in your life.

Therapy for Teenagers

I work with children 13 and older and provide solutions for generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic attacks, depression, child & family conflict, low self-esteem, nonbinary & transgender affirming therapy, and academic challenges. 

Some concerns you may have for your teen include:

  • Increased fighting at home.

  • Struggling with pandemic stressors.

  • Difficulty finding and keeping friends or fitting in.

  • Low self-worth and self-esteem.

  • Problems with school attendance or homework.


Solutions for Adults

Wouldn't it be nice to just breathe easy and feel relaxed? Anxiety and stress can be challenging in the best of times, but the last few years have compounded these difficulties. Moreover, anxiety and depression lie. They tell you that you cannot engage productively in life. I provide therapy solutions that overcome this deception. Therapy allows you to better understand your emotions, which is why I provide DBT skills-based solutions for borderline personality disorder.  Therapy is also a place to know who you really are, which is why I offer nonbinary and transgender affirming therapy for both adults and teens.

Solutions for Teens

Being an adolescent is a challenging time. It’s a time to build your identity, figure out who you are, and who you hope to become. Therapy can help your child to recognize their strengths in a comfortable session where they will be heard. By actively engaging teens in therapy, I promote insight, emotional awareness, and growth toward a brighter future.


My Approach

​My research-based approach varies based upon your experiences and the concerns to be addressed.

Some methods I use to solve these concerns include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

  • Family Systems Therapy (FST)

  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)

  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)


But no matter the approach, my client's goals and needs are my priority in creating their unique therapeutic path. 

Services Are Currently Online Only

Online Therapy has many benefits:

  • Convenient sessions with no travel time.

  • Just as effective as in person therapy.

  • Often more affordable than in person therapy.

  • Easy to use and HIPAA secure video connection.

I welcome you to contact me to see how we might work together to instill self-knowledge and to create a more satisfying life.​
