About

Life is challenging enough without adding a pandemic to the mix. Much of what we used to rely on to bring happiness day to day is now limited. So it is understandable we are more vulnerable to feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or experience strain in our relationships. This feels familiar to the clients I see, who describe being stuck, depressed, feeling angst, and not sure why or how to stop it. I've been there too, stuck with pain from the past and unsure how to throw the baggage away. I can help you find some peace, with a few satisfying 'A-ha' moment here and there, so you can release the toxic patterns for good!
With over a decade of experience and training, the most valuable skill I have is the one that recognizes you as the expert in your life. My role is to hear you, provide you a safe judgment-free space to explore these thoughts and feelings, and share evidence-informed perspectives and strategies that guide you to achieve your goals.
We all feel disconnected from ourselves and others. Some of my most meaningful moments in therapy came when I was open to accepting support. By being here and aware of what you need, you have already started on the path to healing. You got this!
