I am a independent, licensed therapist in Arizona with over 10 years of experience working with different populations and different issues. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, co-occurring diagnosis, trauma, addiction, and ADHD. My background is heavily grounded in trauma informed care and setting the intention of doing no harm. My motto and general approach to life is having unconditional positive regard for my clients – we all have a story, I want to hear yours and help you navigate through whatever might be currently causing distress. I strive to ensure a safe, comfortable environment that is cohesive to your learning style.
My therapy style is engaging & adaptive to your needs. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, & compassion. My goal is to help my clients navigate through the pain they tend to carry in a way that doesn’t cause them to experience more pain while doing so. My approach is person centered with you and your goals being the center of everything. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral (CBT), humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life; to take the first steps towards change is extremely difficult. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
