We are all inherently wired for healing given the right conditions. Through genuine curiosity, empathy, and grounded presence, I work to create a safe, explorative, validating, and collaborative therapeutic space, one that honors each person's unique worldview and identity. Therapy presents a transformative opportunity to feel deeply seen and heard, to process and make sense of emotions, to cultivate strengths, to deepen self awareness, and to live with purpose and meaning.
I collaborate with clients to build skills and replenish inner resources so they may remove obstacles blocking their sense of freedom and motion. I encourage authenticity, self-discovery, the pursuit of what is truly meaningful, and ultimately, to fully engage in life’s journey.
Please feel free to reach out if you are interested in starting therapy, I would be happy to share additional information and review if we may be a good fit.

If your life is out of balance, you may be experiencing depression, anxiety, or physical pain. Let's explore what is causing these symptoms and preventing you from leading the life you want. Your suffering may be life's way of calling you towards change. Through curiosity and self-awareness I can help you release what no longer serves you and step into your own vibrancy.
