It can feel very nerve-wracking to think about starting therapy and overwhelming in trying to find the right therapist. Truly, the hardest step in this journey is taking that first step by reaching out. My passion is in helping you lift the burden you’ve been carrying and identifying ways of bettering your relationship with yourself and others in your life. Many people struggle with feeling like in order to be strong they need to push through and avoid the hurt they’ve been carrying, and that shows up in detrimental ways in their relationships and in their careers.
As an attachment therapist, we’ll look at how your symptoms are not a reflection of some personal flaw, but rather as a symptom of a larger relational problem. My goal is to be a safe and consistent attachment figure for you; when our brains have access to this dynamic, we have unlimited growth opportunities and anything becomes possible.
Have hope that things can and will get better. Results don't happen overnight. It takes time and dedication to see the results you're hoping for. If you've made it this far, send me an email. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Therapy is a collaborative process where you decide what we work on each week. For me, the most important element in therapy is your ability to tell your story on your terms, highlighting it with compassion, honesty, and humor. If you're pretty nerdy (like me), we'll use your nerdy passions to help frame your therapy.
