We all experience sadness, anxiety, anger, and other negative emotions, but at a certain point, these emotions become more of a burden than we can bear, and can affect our normal functioning; our relationships, jobs, schoolwork, and personal lives as a whole can suffer. Starting therapy is a courageous step toward feeling better; making the choice to become vulnerable in front of another person in order to receive help may be one of the hardest things you ever do. Right now, by looking for a therapist, you're showing the insight that you're worth more.

I believe that everyone is capable of feeling better. I believe that humor has a place in therapy. And I believe that people have great amounts of strength that can carry them through hardship, which constantly humbles and amazes me. I look forward to helping you access your resilience and determination.

I treat all clients as individuals and the experts of their own lives; together, we'll find a way for you to move through your difficulties, and I will be by your side all the way. My approach for teens and adults is supportive, creative, and focused on exploration. We'll identify goals, navigate your issues, and capitalize on your strengths.
