About

Do you struggle with anxiety or low mood, have difficulty creating new habits, experience high stress or pressure, or have problems in relationships? My approach to individual therapy combines CBT with concepts including mindfulness, attachment, meaning-making/purpose, and often an exploration of values and beliefs to address mood and create a more fulfilling life. I work with individuals (8+), couples, and families. Read more on my website where I go into detail. You want to thrive. I can help.
I help clients navigate a variety of issues from anxiety, low mood, and stress, to personality exploration, trauma, relationship issues, goal setting, and motivation. I combine CBT, mindfulness, Narrative therapy, and a sprinkling of other therapy styles for individuals, and I use the Gottman Method, and emotion and attachment therapy with couples.
I am a warm and empathic therapist who takes a non-judgmental approach to explore personal and relationship concerns. My approach is genuine, down-to-earth, and respects client autonomy and cultural factors. I enjoy supporting clients in learning new perspectives that shift their thinking and lead to growth.
