She also helps those with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and those experiencing overwhelming grief.

Dr. Wilson also encourages clients to consider their readiness for change through Motivational Interviewing, a therapy modality that’s helpful in creating meaningful change in one’s life. Clients learn techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as Dr. Wilson teaches them how to avoid the cognitive distortions that hold them back from feeling balanced, whole, and loved. Dr. Wilson’s style is empathetic, understanding, and professional as she offers her expertise.
