There is currently a lot of uncertainty in the world. Now, more than ever it is important to find the support we might have been lacking. Usually, we feel as if we can tackle everything on our own, but that might not be the case anymore. Taking the step to care for yourself not only benefits you, but those around you. In my experience, I have found that the most healing moments occur when we are able to be completely open with another person and then be accepted for who we truly are. I value all my clients whole-heatedly and emphasize your autonomy and personal choice. I believe that you are the expert on your own life.

I operate from an existential point of view; I believe we all strive to define the meaning and purpose of our lives and experiences. If you see therapy as a vehicle for healing, meaning-making, and growth, I hope I can hold that space for you, no matter what you're facing. I employ an eclectic approach with a strong grounding in cognitive-behavioral therapy, and align the tools from my experience with your personal goals for our work together. I approach the counseling relationship as a collaborative partnership where we figure out together how to heal and move forward.

**NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS AT THIS TIME** Everyone has the essential ingredients for transformation. Clients are seen through the balanced lens of their greatest potential and challenges. Clients who seek my support are those who find themselves at an intersection in life; seeking balance and resolution between internal and external expectations found in their relationships, family, identity, career, society, etc. I support clients in peeling back the layers of themselves - to gain a deeper and broader perspective on who they are and who they want to become. BIPOC and multicultural individuals in particular benefit from this lens.

At Connections First we have faith in the power of connection: with your inner life and to the outer world through meaningful relationships. We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings. Much of our symptoms are the effects of emotional, psychological, and physical isolation and self-alienation which can even happen when we are surrounded by other people.
