About

Navigating life's set backs, challenges, and adversities can absolutely take a toll on our wellbeing and ability to function, which is why it is important to know that you do not have to work through these concerns alone. I believe in the power of healing through promoting self-awareness, autonomy and empowerment, and also in people's strength to move towards change. Though suffering is a part of life, something that all humans share, working to manifest helpful and sustainable coping mechanisms, and skills that will work to serve you long term makes a difference in the quality of life a person experiences.
I utilizes a variety of evidence-based therapies including the Person Centered approach to foster the trust building process and increase client autonomy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). My experience resides in working with individuals, adolescents, and families.
If you find yourself facing challenges related to mood concerns, body image, eating disorders, trauma, and substance use, my help and support are available to you. Focusing on the present, let us work together to make changes that will make space for personal growth and cultivate contentment, joy, stability, forward movement, and fulfilment.
