"Psychotherapy is a unique relationship in which you are invited to explore who you are. I believe therapy should be a space of freedom, where we can explore the ideas, fantasies, dreams, and thoughts we normally keep hidden – even from ourselves. Through this experience of speaking their true desire and singular story, many people reach new perspectives on old struggles and are able to create lasting change. I listen attentively and with nonjudgmental curiosity to your inner conflicts, thoughts, relationship patters, family history, ways of speaking, and more, as clues to where you’ve been and where you may need to go.

"Not accepting new clients - Hello, and welcome to my profile. I have been working with young children, adolescents, adults, and families since 2010 and look forward to helping you help yourself. I believe that therapy is most successful when the client is open to having me walk alongside them, joining in the journey of mental health awareness and healing. Taking the first step to exploring this journey is a difficult thing to do, and having a compassionate therapist who understands and supports you is key."
