We all deserve to be happy and fulfilled in our relationships. However, healthy and meaningful relationships do not come without work. Whether it is with your intimate partner , friends, family or coworkers, the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our mental health. I help individuals understand how their past experiences, sometimes traumatic, impact their present struggles related to anxiety, stress or depression, and often interfere with their ability to cultivate and maintain relationship satisfaction.

The crux of my approach is simple, but versatile: I use anything and everything available to make breakthroughs possible. We all do better with an expansive toolkit. EMDR for "stuckness" / trauma and Gottman methods for couples to repair & connect. (Well worth YouTubing either for a sense of them.) Once we understand each other and you are insight-equipped, we'll put insight into action. But in ways that feel authentic to your personal experience of things. Clients often report that my approachable, humorous, "very human" style makes therapy a much more effective experience even when exploring difficult content.

I work with young adults and teens in various transitions in their lives who are struggling, and believe relief from such negative places is possible. Maybe you're trying to navigate relationships with family, friends, or co-workers; or trying to establish a healthy personal or professional relationship.

I work with adults, couples , and adolescents to navigate life transitions, trauma, relationship issues, anxiety, and perfectionism.
My approach to therapy focuses on strengthening relationships - between the therapist and the client, the client's relationship with themselves, and their relationships with others. My clients feel lost or overwhelmed and want to experience changes in their lives but may not know where to start. Together, we work to understand how unprocessed emotions and past experiences are getting in the way of their wellbeing. My clients want to build tools to better understand themselves, cope with challenges, and feel more satisfied in their personal relationships.

I believe you are the only expert in your own life, so my role is to help you discover the best way for you to navigate this transition.

This is why it is crucial to find the right person to be your partner on this journey.
I provide culturally responsive individual psychotherapy to adults of all ages. I work collaboratively with clients from a relational/psychodynamic framework, but I am also skilled working in a more structured way to address specific and short-term goals. Above all, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the central element in treatment. The relationship is the medium by which therapy helps clients foster a strong sense of self-worth and identity, increase happiness and life satisfaction, improve the quality of their relationships, and understand their feelings, motives, and behavior.
