I firmly believe that you have the potential to make a positive change in your life. In building a collaborative and supportive therapeutic relationship, I seek to offer companionship in that journey, utilizing an evidenced-based, person-centered approach to fostering the ability to cope with life's challenges. I acknowledge the difficulty inherent in allowing yourself to be open in sharing your personal story. I believe the willingness to engage in direct communication involving your experiences, symptoms, and assumptions can permit transformative growth and healing to take place.

My professional experience includes a wide variety of work with individuals, children, and families facing disruption from trauma, substance abuse, grief, anxiety, depression, and co-occurring disorders. As a Peace Corps volunteer, I have lived and worked alongside individuals facing chronic illness, and learned the importance of being culturally sensitive and acknowledging diversity.

An important goal is creating an atmosphere of safety and acceptance in the therapeutic relationship, and developing mutually agreed upon goals for treatment. I approach each client with empathy, and openness regardless of age. Individuals, children, and families are engaged in therapy with compassion and dignity, as they move towards self-awareness, understanding, and reconciliation.
