"Therapy is an opportunity for personal development in a safe, nonjudgmental, respectful, private, and supportive environment. It is natural to feel overwhelmed at times and it is not a sign of weak character to seek help. Through therapy we can learn to manage our emotions more effectively, improve our relationships and communication, bolster our confidence and self-esteem, and minimize our distress. In my work, I strive to create a comfortable environment in which I can assist clients in identifying thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and recurring patterns of behavior that may be impinging on the capacity to experience and create a fuller, more satisfying life."

" I am passionate about helping you find yourself again, while acknowledging and celebrating your inner wisdom and resilience. Our life experiences and relationships can lead us to question our own strengths and we stray further from the empowered person we want to be. Due to the things we have had to endure, it can be hard to trust, connect or feel like we can share our voice, thoughts, and feelings with others. The messages we receive throughout our lives may exaggerate the need to hide our true selves and we become more confused and lost. "

"As a clinical psychologist trained as an integrationist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. I believe it is important to consider not only what is going on in the present, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, interpersonally,and cognitively. In addition to conceptualizing our experiences as people from a systems perspective, I conduct individual, group, and family therapy using a DBT-informed frame of practice. What this means is that change comes about by learning new behaviors in a variety of contexts while balancing the reality of a person's situation and skill level with acceptance."

"When we are stressed or depressed, it can be really hard to access our intuition or wisdom. Even seeking the help of a therapist can be difficult because of the way that stress interfers with self trust or confidence. Research shows us that while a therapist's skills and techniques are important nevertheless the most significant aspect to therapy is the relationship between the therapist and client. In order to help this decision making process, I offer a 30 min free phone consult. That way we can begin to explore together how we might feel and perceive as a fit."
