I continue to serve those looking for individual therapy. As a therapist specializing in substance use disorders, anxiety, depression, and life transitions, I understand the complexities of personal and professional challenges. Particularly, I have a keen interest in working with individuals who have experienced trauma, substance use, addictions, and life-altering transitions.

My approach emphasizes authentic connections and acknowledges the value of shared experiences while respecting individual differences. Together, we'll work towards breaking unhealthy patterns, fostering growth, and creating a safe environment for personal development.

Throughout our sessions, I draw from a diverse range of evidence-based treatment modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Schema Therapy, Strengths-Based approaches, and Mindfulness-Based Therapy. In our collaborative and non-judgmental space, your voice will be heard, and your journey supported.

If you're ready to embark on a journey of healing and personal growth, I warmly invite you to connect with me. Together, we will explore evidence-based approaches to address anxiety, depression, trauma, substance use, or any other challenges you may be facing. Let's work collaboratively to help you find your path to wellness.

Self-pay options are available, and I accept various insurances, including United Health Care, UMR, Aetna, Optima, and Ohio


Healthy. Get in touch today, and let's begin this empowering journey together.
