Every morning each of us wakes up with a new opportunity to be our best self. A chance to take the best of who we are and utilize those skills and talents to explore, challenge, and grow. In me, you will find a partner willing to collaborate with you to do the necessary work to evoke change in whatever spheres of life you have identified as needing attention. Through introspection, self-awareness, and acceptance we will collectively engage in the therapeutic journey that will help you gain clarity, reach higher heights, and live well.
I believe in using a holistic, collaborative approach that focuses on client’s strength in order to promote progress and healing. I recognize that facing fears and challenges can be an incredibly difficult process. Therefore, I believe it is imperative to hold a balance of warmth and compassion, as well as honesty and authenticity, to help individuals achieve their goals. In my work I use a myriad of evidence-based treatments to care for my clients; yet, additionally I acknowledge there is no “one size fits all” approach. This distinction informs the devotion, care, and time I take to ensure my clients feel empowered.
