My treatment approach is rooted in Humanistic and Existential philosophies.
I regard each individual as the foremost expert on themselves. As a therapist, my goal is to guide you to discover and become your authentic self. The therapeutic relationship is one that is collaborative and built on trust.

I spent a decade working with adults and adolescents at one of the country’s most prominent residential treatment centers in various therapeutic and administrative roles. I have also worked in settings including crisis hotlines, employee assistance, and gambling addiction services.
