I have over 9 years of experience in the mental health field, working with a wide variety of individuals and assisting them in overcoming their struggles. My topics of specialty are depression, anxiety, communication, relationships, and anger. I utilize different modalities depending on the person and situation, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Informed Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Client-Centered Therapy. Making sure that a therapy plan is individualized is highly important to me, as no two individuals are the same. I hope to make you an active leading role in your own mental health, in order to create the kind of life that you want to live and find happiness in.

I enjoy music, going to the beach, music, lifting weights, and MMA.
I will engage in deep breathing/meditation at least 1x/day. I will also play with my dog.
The Gift of Therapy by Irvin D. Yalom. I think it is a fantastic read for anyone who is receiving or providing therapy and helps provide perspective on some of the things that are important in the process.
I recharge by getting some alone time reading, gaming, or spending time with my dog.
