My Approach to Therapy:

As a Psychologist, I help people manage stress, increase confidence, and navigate life’s unexpected twists and turns. The foundation of my practice is based on a cognitive-behavioral approach but that just means that research informs my psychology practice and I believe in doing what works. I help clients challenge limiting mindsets, beliefs that are no longer serving them, and help them realize what they are truly capable of. If you are tired of trying the same old thing and getting the same results, send me an e-mail and let me what you are looking for and how I can help. My goal is to help you get where you want to be as quickly as possible without wasting your time. If I am not the right person to help you, I can hopefully point you in the right direction.
