I take a humanistic and systems-orientated approach that values the therapeutic relationship, creates safety and restores that compassion you lack within yourself and relationships.
Do you feel that your need to be perfect has created unrealistic expectations in your relationships with yourself and has caused chronic distress? Do you feel that you have become critical of self to the point where your flaws are the main focus and lost sense of yourself? This may have made it challenging to really feel fulfilled in all areas of your life and has affected the way you engage in your relationships. Through this self critical process you feel that the only solution is pushing yourself harder to see change but it riddles you with more anxiety and sadness. This cycle continues to leave you confused on how to proceed.

I've studied and trained in a number of different therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic/existential, and found it wisest to utilize the most effective and appropriate strategies based on an individual's unique needs, strengths, and interests.
Being a human being isn't easy. Unfortunately, it seems we are destined at times in our lives to experience pain, fear, confusion, and difficulty. The good news is that it is often through befriending and understanding that which is most painful, frightening, or challenging that we grow and find more enduring freedom and peace. As a therapist, I see my role as offering the nurturing environment within which individuals can better understand themselves and their lives, overcome their challenges, and discover their true potential.

I believe that everyone deserves a time and a place to work on their mental health, heal from painful experiences, and move towards finding more meaning in their lives and relationships. I also know that given the current pandemic, we're all struggling more than usual! I offer a warm and judgment-free zone to work on a range of issues. I believe psychotherapy works best when it is tailored to each person as a unique individual. I utilize an integrative model, drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), relational, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and humanistic approaches.
