Every individual I have the opportunity to meet carriers with them a collection of unique experiences, thoughts, beliefs, values and goals. As humans, we all have periods in our lives when we think, “things are not how they should or ought to be” and this may lead us to a place where we may not be feeling like ourselves. I genuinely believe that you, as a client, are the expert at your own life, but sometimes, even experts can use a little fine tuning- this is one of the functions of therapy! I promise to provide you with the highest quality service that it tailored to your specific needs.
As a therapist, but first and foremost, as a human being, it is my promise to you, that I will walk with you through the difficult and joyous chapters of your life and through therapy, will help you re-establish the goals that you envision for yourself. No two clients are the same and it would be unfair to you if you were treated as such.
My warm and authentic approach allows you to be open (without it feeling absolutely terrifying) with me. The combo of your voluntary vulnerability, safe therapeutic environment and my skill set will surely help you navigate your past, present and future experiences and will allow you to facilitate your desired growth and change for a brighter future.

The combination of my education and experience allows me to be clinically astute; what does that mean? It means that I am able to listen to what you are saying as well as read between the lines of what you are not. As a trauma informed therapist- it is also my job to read your body language. This will help you bring the unconscious, conscious and ultimately, help you feel better sooner.
