I believe that the meaning, or sometimes “lack of meaning,” we apply to our situations, experiences, people, and ourselves is often the root of much discomfort and suffering. In meeting with individuals, I hope to learn, understand, and share your experiences to explore what meaning is being applied and if perspective and approaches need to be adjusted.

“Before you assist others, put your oxygen mask on first.” I strongly believe that as individuals we need to prioritize our well-being to live a full and rewarding life. Self-care and self-love are two incredibly important concepts, and starting the journey to both of them through therapy is a wonderful beginning. It is a journey that I would love to take on with you. Beginnings are never easy, but I will be here to support and guide you, and hopefully make this as easy and rewarding of a process as it can be.
