"Seeking out a therapist and entering therapy can sometimes be an intimidating prospect. My goal as a therapist is to create a therapeutic environment that puts a client at ease and supports self-exploration in a safe, comfortable atmosphere. A client's desire for growth and change is a very personal journey and I believe in an individualized approach that supports each person's expressed need. Life is littered with suffering in different forms and I want to aid my clients in developing a deeper understanding of this suffering and meaning to what may feel meaningless."

Imagine the following: you have been using the same paint palette for a while. You never clean the palette, so all the paint from the past years have dried on top of each other. One day, you feel uneasy with the top color so you decide to rip it off. It isn't until you turn it over that you see all the colors and realize they cannot be separated from each other. I focus on the clients as a whole and I believe that whatever brings you to therapy is deeply rooted in your cumulative life experiences, not in isolation.

I provide a safe, supportive, non-judgmental but honest environment that promotes deeper connection with self self and others, and teach practical skills and techniques that people can use to better navigate their unique struggles. I focus on discovering a person's, family, or couple's strength and empowering their innate abilities to make healthy and meaningful change. ​

Are you unhappy with the way things in your life have been going? Do you experience emotions that cause you to feel out of control? This can be very frustrating and overwhelming. Unfortunately, many people have not been taught how to regulate intense emotions, and it can be difficult navigating life when we don’t feel like we are in the driver’s seat. What would it be like to learn new skills and perspectives that could lead you to achieve the life you have always imagined? As a therapist, I have worked with many individuals struggling with acceptance, managing intense emotions, intrusive thoughts, and interpersonal communication.

I enjoy working with young adult and adolescent clients and the age-specific issues that these groups commonly experience. It's so difficult to be at an age where you're expected to act like an adult but are still treated like a child - this experience can be confusing and breed feelings of self-doubt and insecurity. I work with my clients to help normalize these feelings and experiences as well as help them make sense of things in the world and within themselves through the transition from adolescence into adulthood.

CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE between family obligations and social pressures can be difficult and put unnecessary pressure on you. Alone and hopeless, you feel like you don't belong. Trying to be someone who you're not so that people will accept you. Fearing disappointment or criticism, you can't say anything to your family or friends because they don't understand. There are reasons for your silence. A skillful guide can help you out of your pain and bring peace back into your life.

Life can be overwhelming. Compassionate support and gentle guidance in times of stress, difficulty, and transition is a gamechanger. For the postpartum mother, who is feeling more overwhelmed than she expected and is trying to find her way back to herself. For the parent, who is trying their best to develop a strong, healthy relationship with their child but the child’s behavior challenges trigger feelings of powerlessness and hopelessness as a parent, and you find yourself responding more harshly than you intend.

I will collaborate with you to find the most effective way for you to connect with your strengths, heal and move forward toward your goals. The setting I strive to create is one of support, safety and caring.
