About

(**At this time, I am not currently accepting new clients**) Hi there! If you are contemplating therapy, you have probably already decided that to some degree, you want to be having a different experience than the one that you are currently living. Those that I work with have been impacted by adversity, loss, grief, and trauma. I help them find ways to manage anxiety, depression, interpersonal conflict, and stress and deal with emotional challenges from childhood and life transitions. Most of us want to bury or forget the hurtful memories, yet by sharing these stories, one can open the door to empowerment and healing.
Through the process of psychotherapy, I seek to create a genuine and secure bond, a space of respect, acceptance, and safety for you. In this environment, you can start the work of examining the ways that you have struggled in order to better understand your own experience and begin to promote change.
If you are searching for a therapist who will listen to and understand your story, who will help you put meaning to what happened and to understand the ways your experiences have effected who you are and how you move through the world I may be a good fit for you. Give me a call or shoot me an email and let us begin today.
