Life can be hard. Whether it is life transitions, stressors, illness, or any perceived limitation, we will all struggle, experience pain, sorrow, and discomfort. The question is, how do we support ourselves during difficult times? What type of relationship would we like to have with ourselves, others, and the world on the winding path of life? I believe psychotherapy connects us with our strengths, values, and compassion we need to live a more fulfilling, meaningful, and authentic life, despite obstacles we all encounter. It helps guide us toward approaching life with an open heart.

Life is full of separations, losses, and adjustments—little deaths that often go unprocessed. Grief is ever-present, and the opportunity to process it can be life-enriching. My goal is to create a secure, non-judgmental space where we can navigate life's uncertainties together. While such experiences may seem daunting, they hold the potential for profound transformation with the right guidance and tools. In my practice, I prioritize collaboration and feedback, value mutual authenticity, and celebrate the full spectrum of your human experience.

When we strive to be independent and responsible, it can feel natural to downplay and intellectualize our emotions. We become skilled in managing the feelings of others, while minimizing our own. We may understand what is causing us pain, but feel stuck and overwhelmed about taking action. I offer non-judgemental space for individuals and couples to explore their experiences with nuance and compassion. My areas of focus include ADHD, relationships, perfectionism, anxiety, grief, career concerns and racial identity. Together, we'll cultivate resilience and self-awareness, moving you towards where you want to be.
