Depression & Anxiety

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 


Borderline Personality

Personality begins developing within the first few years of life. Early childhood trauma has a significant impact on personality development, whether positive or negative. At times in  development, basic skills are not learned due to these early childhood experiences. 

Let me help you rediscover your potential and new beginning!
