About

Let us then suppose the mind to be, as we say, white paper void of all characters, without any ideas. How comes it to be furnished? Whence comes it by that vast store which the busy and boundless fancy of man has painted on it with an almost endless variety? Whence has it all the materials of reason and knowledge? To this I answer, in one word, from EXPERIENCE.” – John Locke.
As a client-centered Therapist, with an emphasis on multigenerational, structural, & strategic theoretical orientations, I'll help you explore your childhood for an understanding of how your past experiences & generational lessons may have impacted life choices & behaviors in the here & now. Since no one person is alike, I implore a myriad of interventions.
Therapy is a safe space that allows clients to gain insight & clarity, as well as to acquire new and additional coping skills to assist in handling life’s stressors. I work with clients of all ages & cover a multitude of presenting problems. My practice is 100% telehealth, where sessions are completed via HIPAA-Compliant video platform.
