IN-PERSON & TELEHEALTH AVAILABLE - Finding the right therapist for your needs can be anxiety-provoking. I believe it is important to use a collaborative approach throughout the therapeutic process in order to help you feel empowered. I value an integrative approach that allows us to address your unique needs and goals. I believe that developing a strong therapeutic rapport with you is essential to maintaining a productive working relationship and meeting treatment goals. I believe it is important to establish a safe space where you feel comfortable to discuss and explore the hardships you are facing.
