"I specialize in working with professionals who are experiencing distressing life events and may be struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, or relationship issues. Often clients come to me feeling lost or not knowing where to begin. I welcome clients as they are; offering genuine warmth and a judgment-free space to help them gain clarity and direction. With compassion and respect for my clients' stories, together we begin understanding emotions, restructuring unhelpful thinking patterns, identifying solutions, and establishing more positive lifestyle habits. Often one small change can set a series of bigger changes in motion."

"People engage in therapy for a multitude of reasons. Maybe you are experiencing pain or discomfort- a signal that something requires your attention. Perhaps you're sensing some incongruence in your life, and need a space to tune in. We all get stressed and overwhelmed at times, but if we do not attend to those cues, we can end up causing ourselves more pain in the long-run. Or worse, suffering. Whatever led you here, I encourage you to try and view it as an opportunity for personal growth and development. Sometimes that can be hard to navigate independently; I can help."
