"I believe relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience--this includes both the relationship we have with ourselves and the relationships we have with others. Often, feeling disconnected from our self can cause us to feel disconnected in other areas of life, such as our career, family, friends, or hobbies. I believe healing occurs when we increase our understanding of ourselves and our relationships, and use that awareness to cultivate new experiences. In my practice, I can help you learn about yourself and support you in stepping outside your comfort zone to make the personal changes you want to see in your life."

"Therapy is something I truly believe we all can benefit from at some point and time in our lives. It is a place and space where we can unload all that we carry day-to-day, whether it be work and family stressors to past traumas. In learning to be vulnerable, we get the opportunity to explore who we truly are and what we might want or need for ourselves. It is my ultimate goal to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space to allow for this kind of vulnerability and exploration. My work has focused on children and family relationships, attachment, trauma, addiction, immigration, impact of stress, and much more. "
