I offer a person-centered approach for individuals, couples, and adolescents affected by life transitions and everyday low self-esteem, anxiety, and stress. Striving for perfection and comparing yourself to others can be alienating; making you insecure, and unworthy of happiness. In our work together we face the defenses of self-judgment, loneliness, fear, weakness, and embarrassment to explore the root of your issues and begin the healing process. As I assist you through your therapeutic process, together we can shed the doubt and empower you towards love and self-acceptance.

I have a holistic approach: I focus on all dimensions of your experience — cognitive, creative, energetic, physical, emotional, and spiritual. In our work, I utilize Person-Centered, psychodynamic, expressive arts and holistic therapies as foundations to help facilitate insight into your experience and guide you to trust yourself.

I want to provide support towards overall all mental, emotional, social balance and health. I can bring a unique set of knowledge and experience and gain a wealth of experience working with you. I am your witness, mentor, coach, and companion along your exploration. My highest priority is to remind you; you are not alone.
