"Entering therapy is a bold, brave step. Most people who have been struggling have tried everything they know to feel better. Asking for support from a therapist marks a turning point. I offer clients my clinical judgment and attention that is rooted in a blend of Psychodynamic, Relational-Cultural and Mindfulness theories as well as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I integrate these concepts into our work in clear, understandable and practical ways. My clients tell me that they appreciate my real and authentic presence; my gentle, direct and honest feedback; and my engaging and interactive way of talking with them."

Your ability to feel comfortable and at ease with a therapist can only help you to address difficult or painful parts of your life. My patients tell me that they often feel safe and "at home" when they are working with me. I enjoy working with folks who have been suffering from depression, trauma, loss, and substance abuse.

"Anxiety, low self-esteem, work pressure, & insecurity can limit fulfillment and wellbeing. We can imagine who we want to be and the connections we desire, but find ourselves stuck in making these desires reality. A warm, strong therapy relationship can help you navigate obstacles and find your way to greater security in who you are. In therapy, I work to build genuine connections with and gently challenge my clients toward their desired selves through evidenced-based treatments such as CBT, DBT & ACT. Because culture is integral to who we are, we will also explore how societal forces and upbringing influence your present challenge."
