About

Finding a therapist can be overwhelming- especially when you need one. I get it. I've been there. But you're on the right track. To get you started, I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation, so feel free to reach out. Even if we aren't the right fit, I'll refer you to someone who might be. I pride myself on offering compassionate, open-minded therapy tailored to your needs. I'm not your mother's therapist: shame, guilt and stigma have no room in my practice. My focus is your growth and well-being.
I'm receptive, open-minded and enjoy working with diverse clients. I have experience helping clients who are: feeling anxious, depressed, stuck and in need of change; struggling in relationships or with family; coping with life transitions; survivors of trauma; experiencing reproductive health challenges; and building identity and increasing self-esteem.
Whatever it is, I want to help you get through it. I'm ready to meet you where you are, without judgment and with an open mind. Email or call me. I try to respond to all phone calls and emails within 24 hrs.
