I have a passion for finding humor even in tough situations, and laughter is a key part of my life. What I cherish most in my work is witnessing those "aha" moments where individuals gain clarity and grow towards their goals. Helping people recognize their potential and self-worth has been my focus for over twenty years as I support them through mental health and life challenges. For me, it's crucial to keep learning and growing alongside them. I believe therapy serves different purposes for each person, but the core element is having a safe space to be authentically oneself in all their messy, wonderful glory.

One of the most essential things in life is for a person to know themselves deeply. This is not exclusive to either the so-called “good” or “bad” parts of ourselves, but rather involves taking inventory of all parts to be able to see the whole picture accurately. Whether it be learning to trust others, setting stronger boundaries, or gaining more self-compassion, we will work together to develop an individualized treatment plan that targets your needs. My approach is straightforward yet warm, inviting you to join a non-judgmental environment where you are encouraged to deeply explore your inner world.
