About

I see my role as an advocate. With a strong belief in human resilience, I work with individuals and couples who feel stuck and limited by life's challenges. By developing a safe and collaborative relationship with my clients, I empower them to find the strength within themselves to live their lives fully and authentically. I specialize in healing from traumatic experiences and addressing issues related to anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and low self-esteem.
My work is informed by multiple theoretical approaches, including attachment, family systems, and cognitive behavioral theories. I have also received specialized training in art therapy and trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy. Both techniques are particularly effective when traditional talk therapy does not suffice, especially when dealing with trauma.
Together we will determine your goals for treatment and tailor a path for you to achieve those goals. I bring curiosity, openness, and creativity to each session and look forward to working with you.
