I'm not the therapist you see in movies. I know if I’m not real, I can’t expect you to be either; and when you feel safe to be real with me, we can work on how that carries over to the rest of your life. We will unravel the complexities that make you exactly who you are and arrange each piece in a way that you take pride in, at a pace you are comfortable with. Being confident and calm in your body is your birthright; the journey to finding both begins with getting curious. I believe, wholeheartedly, in your ability to heal.

Therapy is a confidential space and more importantly a relationship that one explores and discovers feelings, internal structures and wishes within.  I hope treatment provides the openness to observe, process and play with these understandings of yourself and your relationships with the world.  It may be a goal, an external event, or an overwhelming feeling that brings you in the door.  My treatment style is informed by psychodynamic, relational and systems theory perspectives.  I believe treatment to be a collaborative, co-creative journey through the healing process.

It can be daunting to seek outside help for something that might be deeply personal. But sometimes, life can overwhelm us, and we might decide that something is not working for us or that it’s time to pursue a change. In these moments, I want to walk with you through your struggles and help you find your way to healing and contentment. In the therapy process, I value the insight you bring about your life and experience, and the work we do together will be, first and foremost, a collaborative effort.
