About

I believe therapy is an opportunity to grow and transform psychologically, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It provides a safe and supportive environment where clients can process their experiences at their own pace. I am dedicated to educating and empowering others to make real and sustainable changes that will produce a lasting and positive impact on their lives. Together, we will develop goals that can help to remove barriers that are preventing the client from being the version of themselves they want to be. Through this collaborative process, clients can learn how to take on more challenging aspects of their lives.
I utilize a psychodynamic/object relations framework and many CBT based interventions in my work. This means I am interested in how a client’s past experiences with primary caregivers have shaped their lives. I also provide skills and techniques to help clients change negative thought patterns and improve their current relationships.
