You’ve most likely been led here because something wants to shift or shed. It is common, and often necessary within our lifetime, to experience many seasons of challenge—for every one of these challenges represents an opportunity to grow deeper into who we truly are. Through the understanding and felt experience of our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, the otherwise unconscious parts of ourselves may be heard. To see ourselves - and each other - for who we truly are takes vulnerability, courage, and curiosity. I support clients alongside their journey toward truth through attunement and empathy in the confidential space of therapy.

Whether you are coming to therapy because you are battling addiction, have relationship issues, unresolved trauma, or are striving for more balance in your life, I am here to help. Making an appointment with a therapist takes courage and is the first step toward personal growth and change. Some people come to therapy to improve their communication skills while others come to explore their unresolved pain that may show up in various symptoms such as, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. If the underlying pain is not dealt with, life can seem difficult and maybe even unbearable. There is no need to suffer. There is hope.

I feel that if I can create this environment I can more deeply connect with others and hope to see things from their perspective. I believe that people have the inner capacity for change, and I want to help them be more able to readily access this. This can look different based on each person, helping people move forward in a way they feel will be most productive. I also value multicultural differences and in an effort to more fully understand a person's frame of reference.
