Are you having difficulty in some aspect of your life – maybe feelings of depression, anxiety, loneliness or recurring problems in your relationships? You are not broken, you are doing your best cope with an often chaotic and complex world of relationships, feelings, and intentions. But what you’re doing isn’t working for you as you wish. I listen to your story with care and an utmost desire to understand your perspective and also share my ideas about how I see and understand the problems you are describing. Together we work to resolve the difficulties you are having.
I know that starting this process can feel overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. Using warmth, empathy, direct feedback and skill building I can help you more fully understand yourself and your relationships and therefore feel empowered to start living the life you want to live. While it is important to minimize daily struggles that get in the way of being fully present in your life and relationships, I firmly believe that healing comes from exploring how our past experiences have affected the ways in which we interpret and interact with our world in the present.

Life with depression or anxiety can be overwhelming, suffocating and lonely.

I have experience working with adult and young adult clients from historically marginalized backgrounds and have worked with a variety of client concerns including depression, anxiety, grief/loss, trauma, relationships, self-esteem, identity, and suicidality.
I deeply value the relationship between therapist and client and believe that therapy is a collaborative process. I approach therapy with a compassionate and open stance, striving to create a genuine connection with each of my clients. I believe that this approach allows individuals to recognize their strengths while being vulnerable about their needs and concerns.
While I have experience working with clients who have problems dealing with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, anger management, and grief, my ideal client has a desire to change and improve their quality of life regardless of their presenting problem. However, change is difficult as we are resistant to it more often that not. I believe through the building of a genuine therapeutic relationship, people can be more open to change and growth. As human beings, connection and support are necessities, especially when we are trying to feel better.

Throughout our lives we go through experiences that help us define who we are. These moments of connection and isolation, fulfillment and confusion are foundational events that make us, us. These can be life altering experiences; societal forces, traumatic events, difficult relationships, or a series of distressing events that we carry for the rest of our lives. Working through these experiences can be scary. Therapy can help us unpack these moments and lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives. In our sessions, we will explore who you are; your world, beliefs, and values.
Each individual has a different journey to walk, filled with obstacles unique to one's life. I walk with individuals as they explore the depths of their life stories and the impact that has had on who they are presently. In addition to exploring one's past we also deal with the here and now and explore what's keeping one from living freely and more fully in the world. My hope is that through our work together individuals will be able to find more degrees of freedom in their life and their relationships. I work with a wide variety of client's ranging from children to adults and specialize in depth-oriented, psychotherapy.
Therapy is an opportunity for self-reflection and personal growth that requires a compassionate and safe therapeutic relationship.
