Did you know that the quality of the relationship you have with your therapist is strongly linked to successful therapeutic outcomes? This is why my goal is to provide every person I see with an emotionally safe space, free of judgment. You want somebody who genuinely cares, who is curious and hopeful. I encourage people to explore new ways of thinking about their experiences and different ways of expressing themselves. I aim for the people I work with to leave each session feeling more empowered, with a sense of agency, and able to learn what they're capable of doing.

Life comes with many complex challenges. We often feel alone, inadequate and challenged to be fully authentic with those we love. Sometimes we lack the necessary support, or the people we look to for help are hurting us. Mental health is strongly influenced by our ability to get our needs met. Psychotherapy is a process where we take a close look at your needs, including the thoughts and feelings you have when you feel stuck. By identifying, fleshing out and contextualizing your reactions, we gain a deeper and nuanced understanding of you. This process will help you find freedom of choice and greater fulfillment.

Therapy is a collaborative process in which you describe your struggles and your vision for how I can help you. My goal is to create a safe, supportive and non-judgmental therapeutic environment to facilitate change and growth, allowing the development of increased personal insight, compassion for yourself, and greater freedom to work through life challenges. I have experience providing treatment to a range of individuals from young children and teens, to young adults entering the work force, to new parents learning to manage toddlers, and older parents adjusting to the ever-changing configurations of their families and lives.

Having been trained to work with people across the lifespan has enabled me to integrate an understanding of the origins, development and resolution of behavior and relationship patterns which are presently holding the client back from important accomplishments or feelings of well-being in their lives, even though these patterns may very well have historically originated out of a functional need.
