I specializes in MFT and ABA. While working with clients, I supports their work by identifying behavior patterns, identifying healthy replacement behaviors, and support my client’s understanding of emotional and cognitive states. Through the understanding of the self, my clients learn how their behaviors impact their environments. And more importantly how they can make changes to enhance their life, relationships, and experiences in their daily environments. I have experience working with adults, couples, groups, and children.

If you're here it's because you are brave and ready to take the next step towards healing past wounds and letting go of relationships and patterns that no longer serve you. When we are in the midst of our darkness, whether it's because we are getting over a break-up, dealing with a sudden loss, recovering from a trauma, healing from past wounds, or simply not feeling worthy, it's often difficult to see all the possibilities that lie before us. If your ready for change and willing to do the work, together we can start manifesting the life you're meant to live.

Life's stressors can feel overwhelming, and sometimes downright debilitating. Many of us struggle with managing obligations in our personal and professional lives. This can leave one feeling anxious, depressed, fearful, hopeless and distraught. Therapy can provide a safe and non-judgmental environment in which to unpack and unload some of the emotional baggage that has been weighing you down. I offer a warm, supportive, non-judgmental approach, and believe a strong therapeutic relationship is key.

My role is to guide you to uncover and empower the parts of you that have gone neglected and break through the patterns that no longer serve you. Together we will attempt to understand the parts of you that feel misunderstood, identify the ways you have undermined your potential, and work through the emotions that must inevitably be processed in order to step into and embrace your most authentic self.

A psychologist’s office ought to be–and I believe mine is–a safe place to express oneself, explore oneself, digest one’s experience and consider new and different modes of action. Digest experience? To me that means learning useful lessons that advance one’s life. Learning, however, in areas of emotion is different than learning arithmetic tables. Painful feelings often must be discharged before one can face how one contributed to the disaster, if one did, or who and what contributed to it. This can be a painful process at times, but a liberating and exciting one as well.
