Seeking help can be difficult and finding the right therapist is key. Each individual is unique and deserves individualized treatment. My primary goal is to offer a safe and caring environment in which each client is treated with dignity and respect. Therapy sessions are a collaborative process and are aimed at empowering clients to better understand themselves and find meaning in their lives.
I have specialized experience in working with college students and professionals dealing with adjustment. My approach is eclectic; utilizing person centered, existential, cognitive behavioral, and trauma-informed therapies.
I believe in meeting each client where they are and helping them to achieve their personal goals. Start your journey of self-exploration today!
