About

I am passionate about working with individuals and couples who are experiencing relational conflict, communication problems, and family distress. I also work with clients in their late teens and young adulthood during transitional times to help them with stress management, anxiety, self esteem, dating, and peer relationships.
I enjoy creating a space for clients to learn more about themselves in the process of therapy by finding their strengths and problem solving skills. When working with couples, I use evidence-based models such as Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman techniques to establish their friendship, build trust, and foster intimacy.
I strive to create a warm, non-judgmental space for clients to feel comfortable sharing their worries and concerns. I believe it is okay not to know how to change; what matters is one’s willingness to work towards change and I look forward to supporting you and journeying with you towards your healing and growth.
