About

Our lives are made up of relationships. When those relationships are peaceful and balanced, we thrive. When they're strained and dysfunctional, we struggle. That's why I'm passionate about helping individuals, couples, and families build stronger relationships. As their therapist, my goal is to ensure that they build the skills they need to handle life's challenges and obstacles with grace so that they can show up for one another in meaningful ways.
My clients tell me that our sessions feel like talking to a lifelong friend. I approach most issues with curiosity and find that the more I seek to understand my clients, the more they can identify connections and patterns for themselves. Because I don't shy away from the truth, I tend to be direct with my clients, while keeping their comfort levels in mind.
There is a quote that says, "A therapist is someone who joins you in the darkness with a light to help you find your way out.” If you’re feeling alone in the darkness, struggling for true connection and belonging in your relationships, let me join you - I know the way out.
