To grow and to heal. This is a choice we can make. If you are reading this, you have already taken a step in that direction. Perhaps you are wondering if therapy can help you take some more steps. These steps can be in many directions – doing better, achieving goals, reducing distress, managing difficult emotions, understanding unhelpful patterns, dealing with relationship issues, coming to terms with the issues of the past, or seeking answers to life’s challenging questions. We arrive in therapy with our own unique expectations. My goal is to help you take the steps towards meeting those expectations.

Deciding to seek help is a powerful step toward better mental health. Through my experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families, I understand that difficulties may arise regardless of one's age or phase of life. From life challenges to transition periods (e.g., changing careers, schools, relationships), to traumatic experiences, it can be difficult to make sense of our selves or our directions. I am proud to support clients from all walks of life (inclusive of all gender identities, sexual orientations, abilities, races, cultures, and relationship types) in achieving their own unique vision of success.

When life stressors become overwhelming, we typically turn to familiar ways of coping. It takes self-awareness and courage to interrupt this cycle, and I commend you for taking the initial step toward meaningful change. I work with individuals struggling with the impact of a wide range of concerns: anxiety, depression, interpersonal trauma, shame, relationship issues, emotion regulation, and loss/grief. I also have extensive experience working with people who struggle with eating disorders and body image, as well as those who are enduring the challenges of integrating their cultural identity.
