Description

As a compassionate and seasoned mental health expert with nearly twenty years of experience, I am dedicated to empowering my clients in their pursuit of well-being and recovery.

My approach to therapy is client-centered, evidence-based, and trauma-informed. I specialize in addressing a wide range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, OCPD, PTSD, autism, ADHD and learning disabilities.
