I have a very engaging and relaxed approach to therapy. Clients often report that they appreciate my authentic style and sense of humor. In any case, the process of therapy begins and is sustained as the client feels heard and understood and can begin to feel comfortable. I come to this work with a certain reverence for what is dignified, courageous, and creative in each of us which over time has informed my life both personally and in my work in supporting others. I rely on no particular therapy framework or "treatment modality" but nonetheless bring a pretty big box of tools to the table.

I love providing a safe place for you to explore different patterns of thinking and behaving. It is my belief together we will uncover your strengths and you’ll learn new skills. Skills that will allow you to deal with the challenges that arise in life; how to navigate your feelings, build better behaviors, and relate to your thoughts differently so you can live the life you want. My goal is to help you build emotional resilience so you can eventually leave therapy and manage on your own.

**Full as of 2/7/2022** Living in a society that prioritizes physical health over mental well-being, we are often led to believe that our psychological health doesn’t matter. We are taught very early on that when things get hard and difficult emotions bubble up, we need to suck it up, put on a smile, and move on. This stigma leaves many of us without space to process the complex struggles we encounter throughout our lives. Therapy creates that space. No concern is too big or too small to work through in session together. Your life and your struggles matter.
