Message to clients

I want to acknowledge how hard it may have been to even get to this step of looking for a psychiatrist. Oftentimes it can be a process months to years in the making. Now that you’re here, I really encourage you to take one more step and reach out for support. Therapy is an investment in you. It is acknowledging that you are worth the time, and you are worth the effort. It can be so hard to be vulnerable and ask for help. My treatment approach is to work collaboratively and build a foundation for a safe and nonjudgmental environment, which will allow us to work together to explore and better understand your thoughts, emotions and behaviors.


Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)

Depression - Providing support and promoting healing of hopelessness, low motivation and energy, sadness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and loss of interest and pleasure in life

Adjustment difficulties & disorders - Support around adapting to new and/or challenging life circumstances; skill-building for improved stress management and reduction of anxiety

Life transitions - Coping with difficult or impactful life changes, such as moving to a new area, relationship transitions, child rearing, or career changes; learning self-care to better manage resulting stress

Mindfulness - Developing practices to encourage a state of active, open attention on the present
