Compassionate therapy tailored for you

Supporting children and adults with anxiety, depression, trauma, and more.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”

Henry Stanley Haskins


In therapy, we can explore triggers, communication patterns, and coping strategies. You can develop healthier responses to anxiety, fostering stronger and more fulfilling connections with your partner. You will be in charge of your life, not your anxiety.


Is depression interfering with your routine, relationships, or work habits? Do you miss the joy you used to experience in life? It is never too late to address your depression. Therapy can help you gain coping skills for long-term, sustained happiness. You can thrive in life.


Do traumatic events from your past still haunt you? Don’t let your past dictate your future. With the right support, you can take steps to manage and heal from the impacts of trauma. I will use a variety of modalities, such as EMDR, to create a personalized plan so you can process trauma, break cycles, and live a more meaningful life.
