About

I am so glad you found your way to my profile. I am an integrative psychotherapist with extensive experience in the treatment of trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. I also specialize in treating depression and mood disorders; anxiety; chronic pain/illness; grief; relationship difficulties; abuse; low self-esteem, anger, and stress. I offer clients a strengths-based, anti-oppressive treatment approach. My belief is that all human beings have an innate capacity to heal and resilience within them that drives them to cope with and overcome any adversity. Let's work together to help you to tap into your resiliency.
Whether you are struggling with unhealthy thought patterns, difficult life circumstances, or distressing and overwhelming emotions, I am committed to providing you with the tools and emotional support to cope. I provide individualized treatment plans, utilizing methods such as CBT, EFT, ACT, and Mindfulness-Based therapy to help you meet your therapy goals.
Within a therapeutic relationship with me, I hope to provide a safe space where you can feel comfortable opening up. You should expect empathy, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. In moving toward positive change, I hope to help you find greater inner strength, wisdom, intuition, and peace. I treat adults (18+) with diverse backgrounds and issues.
