About

Therapy can offer hope in the midst of depression, anxiety, trauma, stressful challenges in work, relationships, health, or other arenas of life. It can also help us respond thoughtfully and creatively rather than anxiously or destructively. I am a firm believer in learning to be open towards yourself, your relationships, and life transitions. This is a more powerful motivator than mentally beating yourself up. We'll work together to identify strengths you can use towards making important life changes, and to build coping skills to deal with difficult emotions, trust, relationship issues, and negative thoughts you might have about yourself.
I offer support by listening and providing gentle insight when needed in a comfortable, emotionally-safe environment tailored for you. Here, you will be validated for being your whole self so that you can explore your feelings, thoughts, hopes, and fears without judgment.
I'm committed to providing a hope-filled, thoughtful and compassionate atmosphere to help you move toward positive change, self acceptance, and symptom relief. Together, we can consider what it might look like to carve out a meaningful, less anxious, life that honors your beliefs, strengths, identities and roles.
