"In life, we often encounter challenges and painful experiences. With these challenges, you might have found yourself in a place of feeling stuck. Your familiar relational and emotional patterns of coping might not be as helpful as they previously were. Relationships might have become more difficult rather than life giving. As your therapist, my goal is to come alongside of you during this hard time in your life and guide you toward a place of peace and balance."

"When working with my clients, I choose to use a collaborative, respectful, and non-pathologizing approach which seeks to highlight an individual’s many abilities, skills, values and beliefs that are often overlooked when problems take control of their lives. I aim to create a safe space for my clients while they navigate through their unique journey of healing and growth. I am also passionate about social justice and invite sociopolitical issues into the therapy room while remaining curious as to how these impact individuals, couples, families and/or communities. "

"Changing is hard. Especially when old ways of doing and being aren't working like they used to. You're likely here because you know a change needs to happen. As scary as change can be, so is staying the same. Finding the right support can be challenging. Whether it's changing a compulsive behavior, recovering from a relationship that ended, going off to college, getting married, or finding the pathway to greater self-awareness, I enjoy helping those in times of transition to find the tools they need to make it happen."

"I know it can be scary to reach out for support, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can't, there is something wrong with us. Well, I'm here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to 'show up' in our relationships with others."
