I believe that therapy should be a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space, that offers the opportunity to process and make sense of emotions and experiences, and move towards deeper sense of self understanding. I am dedicated to helping people identify how certain thoughts, feelings and behaviors contribute to distress, and creating a collaborative path to change. My passion for providing therapy comes from the belief that we are inherently aware of what we need to be successful and are capable of making the changes necessary to move in a positive direction.

At some point in our lives we all experience the full force of life’s challenges. Sometimes the distress, pain, alienation or isolation is too intense for us to traverse life’s path alone. Yet, for many of us, asking for help or inviting others into our private world is equally difficult. I hope to convince you that therapy can help us understand conflicts underlying these challenges. Through insight, self-empowerment and enhanced emotional regulation, we can become more adaptive and begin to heal and grow in the face of challenges or transitions. Therapy can also help to cultivate a greater sense of meaning and purpose in our live.

Life. Have you done it before? Me either! As first timers, it is no surprise that we encounter challenges, experience hang-ups, and may occasionally find ourselves questioning which way the world is spinning. It’s okay. We’re new at this and we don’t have to have all of the answers. What I do know is that the ups, downs, and everything in between, are part of the human experience. I believe that therapy is a great place to navigate the questions that come with being human and gain insight to a better self-understanding.

I believe that just because we can navigate life’s challenges alone, doesn’t mean we should have to. It takes strength and courage to seek support, and in my style of genuine and empathic connection, I actively engage individuals in an insight-oriented therapeutic experience. Together we will build tools to navigate daily challenges, as well as draw connections to past experiences and how they impact your present. My goal is to help you access and trust your internal compass, strengthen resiliency, and find growth and fulfillment.

I believe therapy is a process of cultivating a relationship where we can collaborate to create meaningful change in your life. My practice provides a nonjudgmental space where you are invited to freely express what’s happening in your inner world- to better understand areas of distress in your life, get to know the unique ways you feel and think, and help you find your way towards living more fully and authentically. Through this exploration we may contextualize present challenges or questions you are facing by connecting them to past experiences. My hope is that in our work you discover new ways of relating to yourself and others.
