Are you frequently worrying about things you can’t control? Do you tend to talk negatively to yourself or feel like you aren’t enough? Are you concerned about relationship issues? Being a human today is hard and people come to therapy for many different reasons. It can be challenging to manage all the aspects of personal, professional, and family life, leaving self-care and wellness on the back burner. I am committed to helping women and couples improve communication, feel better, and live well. I value the importance of building a trusting and collaborative relationship and know that finding the right therapist can be hard.
I provide online therapy and primarily work with adult females and couples who are dealing with a wide range of issues including anxiety, stress, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. My approach is integrative and flexible, with framework pulling from Attachment Theory, Emotion-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Gottman Method.
I will meet you where you are with compassion while welcoming all parts of you into our sessions. I provide a laid back and authentic space, and my goal is to make you feel safe, empowered, and help you deepen your understanding of yourself and improve your relationships. If any of this resonates with you, let's connect to see if we are a good fit!
