I have focused my work on supporting queer and trans people and people of color. The clients who tend to be the best fit for my clinical approach tend to be people who are looking to be pushed, who want to build self-awareness, and want to change their relationship with their younger selves. They are asking the questions, "Who I am in this world?" or "How do I heal from the violence of the world?" or "How do I do things differently?" They want to build meaningful lives, practice gratitude and mindfulness, and alleviate suffering by offering themselves understanding and self-nurture.

I believe therapy is a partnership between the therapist and the client working together to understand unhelpful patterns of behavior and to more effectively manage relationships and problematic life situations. I see each individual as unique. It is thus important to understand the various aspects of this personal uniqueness and the specific situations and struggles that she or he is dealing with.

Are you feeling trapped or overwhelmed by life's challenges? Does something feel "off," but you don't yet have words for it? A strong therapeutic relationship can empower us to live the lives we want by challenging the stories we tell about ourselves and the world. Asking for help can be daunting, so I work to create a safe environment that supports my clients in being fully themselves. Since each person comes to my office with their own vision of what a fulfilling life looks like, I use a collaborative approach to meet each person's unique needs.

Life's moments are filled with joy, disappointment, triumph and challenges. Many of these experiences leave us feeling exhilarated, overwhelmed and in search of a new path in a different direction. I believe that the therapeutic environment is a safe space where mutual trust, honesty and insightful dialogue allow you to nurture, heal and replenish yourself. The therapeutic relationship is essential to my clinical approach; a collaborative effort to support and challenge as we establish and progress toward identified goals.

Every person comes to therapy for his/her/their own reasons. One person's bumps in the road may be another person's crises. Thus, each therapeutic journey is unique and individually compelling. For some, it's a crisis, a loss, or some major life event or transition that brings them to my office. Other people find their way here when they can no longer tolerate the cumulative impact of chronic stress or the frustration of dissatisfying relationships and life circumstances. I believe that a boundaried, empathic relationship with the right therapist can be restorative and an instrument for positive change.

My ideal in therapy is to be able to set a comfortable environment in which growth can be achieved. I truly believe that a person can overcome and achieve anything that they set their mind to. I like to set an environment in which working together with the client goals can be turned into reality. I do not believe that there is a problem that is too big or small that cannot be tackled with the help of a supportive and motivating environment. Originally I am from Lithuanian that leads me to having a special interest in immigration/assimilation concerns. I have experience working with children, adolescence, and adults.

I aspire to listen, understand, and guide each person I treat through the problems that are getting in the way of feeling more happy and fulfilled. Oftentimes, painful emotions or difficult relationships are the catalyst for someone to begin therapy. I work with each patient to alleviate the pain they are experiencing on a day-to-day basis while we ascertain the underlying emotional issues that may contribute to destructive patterns. This two-pronged approach is helpful in order to cope effectively with similar problems as they arise in the future.
