"I strive to help people become their own authority. I focus on the individual's relationship with themselves fostering an understanding and compassion towards personal strengths and vulnerabilities. I believe in helping people understand and relate better to their vulnerabilities, utilize individual strengths, and most of all, instill hope that healing inner turmoil is possible. I believe it is imperative to understand ourselves so that we can heal parts of the self that are no longer serving us. My clinical training is in psychodynamic therapy, and I tend to gravitate towards an attachment based and humanistic approach."

"When you find yourself struggling, in emotional pain, or unable to attain goals, psychotherapy can assist in ways that doing it on your own cannot. Much of how we relate to others and even many of the ideas we have about ourselves developed within the context of relationships to others: parents, siblings, teachers, friends, etc. In therapy these dynamics come alive in ways that shed light so that together we can work through ways in which you feel stuck and develop new ways of being in the world."
