Specialties

Specializing in Anxiety Treatment, Depression and Trauma Therapy

Anxiety

Do you feel anxious most of the time? Some anxiety is normal. However, it can become a problem if you spend large portions of the day worrying about past or future events. Let's work together to identify what is causing your anxiety and explore ways to combat it.

Couples Therapy

Couples want to enhance their romantic relationships and work through interpersonal conflict. Ineffective communication can cause tiny fractures that lead to unhealthy outcomes. Let's discuss your relationship in a safe environment in order to prevent negative patterns of interacting.

Depression

Depression is tough. It can make us irritable, angry, and even impact our ability to concentrate. Depression may also make us want to isolate ourselves from those who care about us most. Let's work together to understand how depression impacts your life and how you can better manage it.

Trauma

Most of life's challenges stem from unresolved significant life events (i.e., trauma). We are trained trauma-informed care which is a safe and effective way of greatly reducing distress associated with trauma memories.

Relationships

Positive relationships are paramount to our overall mental wellness. Difficult relationships, however, can cause us to experience distress in many areas of our life. We can help you develop communication skills that foster more meaningful relationships (i.e., meeting new people) and advocacy skills to help you end relationships that no longer serve you.

 Adolescents

Growing up is difficult. It is a time of constant transition and where we explore who are. This can result in a variety of challenges (i.e., depression, anxiety, etc.). We work hard to connect with young people so that they feel heard and understood. Let's work together to address struggles that you may be experiencing.
