Imagine that while you are asleep tonight, a miracle happens. When you wake up, you are living as your ideal self. What is the first thing you would notice? What would you see when you opened your eyes? How would you feel different? What is the first thing others will notice about you? What role will you play in creating your miracle cure? How can we work together to make this your reality? Creating a trusting therapeutic relationship is the first step. Whether you want to decrease isolation, increase connections with friends and family, or help to finding the right solution to a problem, I am here. My specialty is finding the root of the problem, exposing it to the sunlight, and helping it move from the place it has been stuck to create room for growth and healing. As a therapist, my philosophy is future focused. I believe in working together to create solutions, to break cycles, promote healing, and set goals to achieve your version of happiness. I strive to understand you and your journey to therapy, in order to create an individualized approach to healing.
I earned my Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from SUNY Oswego. Since completing my education, I have provided therapy to children, adults, couples, and groups. I have been trained to utilize a variety of approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and rational emotive behavior therapy. I believe in practicing person centered therapy- finding the right approach based on an individual’s needs, utilizing a combination of styles to help clients overcome anxiety, depression, addiction, PTSD, grief, life transitions such as moving away from home for the first time, dealing with divorce and single parenthood, a life-changing health diagnosis, job loss, trauma, and relationship conflicts, including a specialization in anger management.
Whether you want to take an active approach to therapy in order to learn skills, create new habits for yourself or if you prefer a more supportive type of therapy, I am here. I look forward to connecting with you, getting to know you and collaborating to help achieve your miracle cure… allowing it to move from dream to reality.
