I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

During therapy consultations, most people say that they want a therapist who won't just sit there and nod at them. That makes a lot of sense to me. Starting with a new therapist takes a lot of courage and most of us wouldn't do it unless we need real help. Most hurt and trauma happens in our relationships with others and in order for therapy to help, you need to be able to trust that your therapist is with you. When.you talk with me, you have my full attention. We'll make connections between what's happening now and what happened in your past experiences. We'll also work on feeling less shame and developing a feeling of safety

My biggest passion is empowering clients who have felt misunderstood, unseen, or mistreated in their lives, and helping them learn everyday skills to handle overwhelming emotions and experiences.

Maybe I'm your therapist...or maybe not. That might sound like an odd thing to say, but I firmly believe (and the research backs me up) that the MOST important determinant in success in therapy is the fit between the client and the therapist. Just like we don't "click" with everyone me meet in the outside world, there's a chance that you and the therapist you pick might not "click." If this is the case, move on, and find someone that works. Then, together, you will build a space for healing, insight, and growth.
