My primary interests include, depression, anxiety, and supporting women in the postpartum period, and career counseling/assessment.
Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed? Do you have trouble expressing difficult thoughts or feelings? My strength as a therapist lies in providing a warm, nonjudgmental space to guide you toward new ways of handling your emotions, communicating with others, and caring for yourself. Maybe you have already identified the problem, like hurt from your past, a difficult relationship, or an unsatisfying job. Or perhaps you just know you aren't at your best and want to make changes in your life. I see therapy as a collaborative process to find hope and seek solutions.

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” - Albert Einstein. I believe that the script we tell ourselves and others is incredibly powerful. The way in which we relate to others, navigate the world, and give meaning to our lives is all guided by our perception of our own narratives. Unfortunately many of us are dominated by our inner critic and negative aspects of that story without including the most important part - you are still here. Even through life's tribulations and traumas there are moments of triumph and resilience. Until we look at the unique parts of our story we remain in misery.
