About

Please come see me even if you have tried therapy many times but still haven't given up on healing! My goal as a therapist is to have a large bag of tools for you so that we can find a technique that you respond to best. I love working with creative people, people who are suffering from anxiety, depression, conflict, people who have chronic pain despite medication adherence and people who are just plain confused about why they feel the way they do. I don't believe that any one approach works for every person, and want to work with you collaboratively to find out what it is that you need for your unique life story.
I am an EMDR and Brainspotting trained clinician. I often utilizes depth psychology and existential approaches to help you see your life and yourself in a healthy way. I specialize in helping clients harness their own creativity and strengths to overcome barriers to growth and healing. I believe in personalizing treatment for each patient and each problem.
Thank you for taking the first step to healing by learning about therapy! In therapy with me, you can expect a supportive and non judgmental environment. You can expect someone who will be genuinely interested in you and your story and in helping you figure out where it can go from here. I start the therapy process where you are now, wherever that may be.
