and Associates Psychotherapy
"Whether you feel overwhelmed right now or simply want to make positive changes in your life... I can help.
I am experienced, non-judgmental and I genuinely care."
I specialize in helping people cope with life changes and challenges.
With me on your side you will not only receive emotional support and proven solutions, but you will learn skills to help you to deal with the tough parts of life more effectively, so you can stress less and experience more joy.
Let's make things better
Sometimes people meet with me and they don't have a specific problem – they just know that don’t feel quite right, or they want more for themselves and for their lives.
You don’t have to have a reason, or a major problem to meet. Coming in to figure out what’s off and working together to get things on-track is reason enough.
I can help you to identify goals and provide you with the tools and support to reach them.
A genuine expert
I am Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and Psychotherapist. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology. This means that I have the training and experience to truly help.
I use psychological principles, and research proven techniques and tools to create solutions tailored to you.
Clients describe me as warm, compassionate and "not too serious." Click the Psychology Today link to learn more.
Are we a fit?
It's important that the wellness professional you choose to work with has extensive training and is licensed. Beyond that, what matters most is choosing a therapist that you can feel comfortable with. It's tough to know that without speaking with that person, which is why I provide a free 15 minute consultation call to help you decide - at no cost or obligation.
