About

I consider it my duty and responsibility to help clients not be defined by their mental illness and emotional struggles, but rather by the strength and courage they possess internally to prevail. The privilege of being with people in their suffering, in their love, in their hope, and be active participants in the intricate depths of their stories is why I do what I do. If you're serious about changing your life, please reach out to me or another therapist you feel you might better connect with. If not, I hope that one day you find the courage to take the most important step in therapy, that of being vulnerable enough to seek help.
I commit to providing you a safe place to express your innermost feelings, emotions and mood, free of judgment or criticism where you will be met with active listening, empathy, and unconditional positive regard (support and acceptance no matter what is said or done). And finally, I will promote not just self-understanding, but also risk taking.
We are all bound by the thread of suffering. But we're also all woven together by a strength and resolve to endure. All we need is hope. As an agent of hope and change, I look forward to working with you.
