I am a warm and empathic therapist who strives to make clients feel safe and understood while exploring what brings them into the office. A primary focus of my work is to help clients overcome the psychological barriers that lead to dissatisfaction, depression and lack of motivation and hope. I am dedicated to creating an authentic atmosphere that invites curiosity and self compassion into the room. Together we will figure out what your goals are for therapy, what does and does not work, and how to make sure you are moving toward a life that you want.

I have a background in fine arts that informs my work with clients and encourages an atmosphere of creativity, openness, and humor. I combine narrative and relational therapies with evidence based practices to help clients clarify feelings, achieve goals and begin thriving.

I specialize in working with LGBTQ people and people with eating disorders. Most recently, I have completed training at The National Institute for the Psychotherapies concentrating on both analytic and psychodynamic therapies. In addition to individual therapy, I offer both group and couples therapy.
