About

If you are considering therapy, you might be looking to improve your day-to-day experience, work through past issues that still bother you today, or manage symptoms that get in the way of your relationships and goals. Therapy can help you discover your inner strength and most important values, and help you find the power to guide yourself into a life you love. I work with individuals facing challenges ranging from grief, self-doubt, and relationship issues to depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance use. You may not know where to start, but together we can figure out the direction you want your therapeutic journey to take.
My style has been described as warm and empathic, and I believe humor and levity can be important parts of therapeutic processing when appropriate. I view therapy as a place where a safe relationship can facilitate your own exploration of your questions, goals, and purpose.
Although I hold the therapeutic relationship as the primary vehicle for exploration and change, I also draw from a toolbox of various evidence-based interventions. Please reach out with any questions about how to get started or about my practice in general.
