I believe that the process of growth and healing requires a unique kind of strength and courage. My approach to therapy begins with creating a space of acceptance, honesty and respect where clients can feel safe to step into self-exploration and take risks in order to build self-awareness and create meaningful change in their lives. I am passionate about working with adolescents and adults dealing with all types of eating, mood and anxiety disorders, as well as clients struggling with non-suicidal self-injury, trauma, and issues related to relationships, identity development, body image, spirituality and self-esteem.

I recognize the uniqueness of each person, couple, adolescent, and family. It is my goal to provide a safe and nurturing environment where one’s true self is free to be expressed. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship which can be curative in itself, which is why it is important to me to bring my most genuine self in order to have an authentic experience in session with my clients. Once the foundation has been set, I build on that relationship and incorporate counseling skills and techniques to gently guide and challenge my clients to help them to meet their therapeutic goals.

These are some surreal and unprecedented times that we are all living in right now. It seems that every day some other tragedy or stressor seems to be added to the heaping mound of stressors we already are dealing with on a daily basis. There is so much of the "unknown" out there and I think we all need help from others, especially now. I believe the ideal healing environment is one where you feel safe, respected, supported and valued. I work very hard to create this kind of space, especially as we are first getting to know each other. I also believe firmly that you are the expert on your own life.

Often people feel a pain inside they are unable to understand or articulate. Perhaps you're frustrated and beginning to feel hopeless or helpless to change. Transformation and change is possible but it is a process, not an event.
