About

Life can be challenging and there are many reasons you may be seeking support, either for yourself or with a partner or family members. It may be that you or a loved one is experiencing depression or anxiety. Stress may be piling up as you try to balance the challenges of life, relationship, career, or family. Perhaps you are just not finding happiness. You may be caregiving for a parent, struggling with grief, or asking "Is this all there is?" As a therapist, I tap into your strengths and creativity so that you can create positive change in your life.
My approach is person-centered yet pragmatic with a focus on you achieving your therapeutic goals. Every individual, family, or couple is unique. Together we will identify the best approach to address your unique needs, which may incorporate mindfulness, CBT, somatic work, motivational interviewing, Gestalt, family systems, and other modalities.
For healthy change to occur, it is important for you to feel heard, appreciated, and understood in an environment that fosters safety and trust. Please contact me to schedule an introductory session so that you can determine if working with me might be helpful in reaching your therapeutic goals.
