It can be difficult to seek help when you are struggling with challenging mental health symptoms and life stressors. You have a unique set of needs, and it can be scary, overwhelming, and intimidating to seek help for the first time or if you are deciding to make a switch from another provider that may not be the best fit for you.

My goal is to provide personalized care using evidence-based practices that are tailored to you and your needs. I promise that I will do my best to support you and to provide you with the best care that I can offer. Together, we will work on improving your mental health with an individualized plan designed just for you.
