‘Hope’ (noun): To desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence. What do you hope for? I think deep down we all hope for similar things; peace, joy, love, excitement, and fulfilling relationships. When we experience depression, anxiety, trauma, stressful life circumstances, parenting challenges or relationship difficulties we can end up feeling hopeless and alone.
My goal as a therapist is to help you rediscover your hopes and dreams and make a plan to achieve them! I will do this by providing a safe space to process what has gotten in your way and helping you identify what changes can be made.
I have worked with children and adults in a variety of settings over the last 10 years. I enjoy working with moms and parents of small children, adults who are suffering from depression or anxiety, individuals looking for new coping skills or strategies to improve their overall functioning, and clients who are having a mental health crisis.
I use a strengths based perspective with strategies from acceptance and commitment therapy, solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness strategies. I have a flexible schedule with evening and weekend appointments available.
