About

Taking care of ourselves can be challenging but life-changing, so I congratulate you for taking this step to move forward. Sometimes the ever-changing aspects of life can get emotionally heavy and take a toll on our health. Whether you are dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions or other challenges related to present and/or past event(s), know that change is possible and you can live a healthy and well-balanced life. Professional help and a safe space can be key elements to get over the hurdles life brings; I am here to provide you with both by guiding you to reach your goals.
My therapy style is holistic based on mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, psycho-education, cognitive processing therapy, exploratory interventions, and solution-focused therapy, which allows me to tailor different interventions for your specific needs. Together we will work through the difficulties that brought you to this page.
I am passionate about my role as a therapist and consider it an honor to be part of someone's healing journey. I believe mental health is as imperative to our overall well-being as physical health is. Contact me for a consultation, and let's discuss further. Currently availability is for weekday evenings.
