I am able to provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults. Some of the clients that I have helped include individuals with depression and anxiety. Some clients come in with unresolved emotional issues that they want help processing, while others can’t exactly pinpoint what they need help with but want help feeling better. If that is the case, I can conduct a structured interview to get a better understanding of a client’s functioning in different areas and collaborate with the client on a treatment plan.
