About

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.
I have varied experience in different settings, from detention centers to tech companies. I use humor and unconditional positive regard to build a safe space together, where you can process and heal. I am trained in CBT, DBT, and trauma-informed approaches, and can help support you on your journey with these evidenced-based, action-oriented tools.
I offer a free initial consultation for us to get to know each other, and see if we're a good fit. If we don't click, I'm more than happy to support you in finding the right person for you.
