About

I am not currently accepting new clients. You might be wondering if you can find someone who “gets you,” someone you can trust. I am committed to providing you with a safe, confidential relationship that allows you to reach your goals at your own pace. You can expect our work together to help you deepen self awareness and acceptance, increase compassion for yourself and others, and renegotiate old patterns that no longer serve you,
My training includes Gestalt, mindfulness and psychodynamic psychotherapy; these are holistic, client-centered approaches that increase your self-awareness, support emotional healing, and bring more peace to your life. For the treatment of trauma, I offer a gentle approach informed by principles of art, narrative, and part’s therapy.
Whether you’re familiar with therapy or this is your first time reaching out, I look forward to hearing from you. Together, we can have a conversation to determine if I’m a good fit for you.
