I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

We all live in this fast-paced environment where we are always on the go. I understand the need to get things done in a timely manner but in these times, our mental health tends to be on the back burner. Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do but it’s also a courageous one. Taking that first step will help make meaningful changes in your everyday life so you can live a happier & enriched life. As your therapist, I will be working with you to understand what has led you to this point & to find effective solutions to maintain your therapeutic goals.

It can be difficult to open up to a stranger about what is going on in your life, but it can also be very liberating to have another person to share your burdens.

The struggles that we experience in our relationships and within ourselves can become overwhelming and feel beyond our control. When we feel stuck like this, I believe that a therapist's role is to help us find meaning, strengthen our personal awareness, and expand the choices that we are therefore able to make. My approach is relational and includes using mindfulness practice, body-awareness, parts-work, and expressive arts to help adolescents and young adults integrate difficult aspects of their experiences. I strive to create a safe and supportive space for individuals to learn, heal, and grow.

Modern life presents a number of challenges for adults and families. It can be difficult to balance all of the conflicting demands, especially if we are also trying to care for others or carrying the weight of past traumas or other unresolved issues. This can lead to increasing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and anger, and can interfere with the relationships we value and need. None of us are perfect, but we all deserve the chance to live a life consistent with our values and goals.
