Does any of the following sound familiar? You're overwhelmed, exhausted, and feeling stuck. You wonder how everyone else has it all figured out. You don't feel smart enough/attractive enough/good enough/(fill in the blank) enough. You find yourself in unfulfilling relationships. You often talk down to yourself, wondering why you can't just get it together. You're questioning your lovability and self-worth, even if others don't know it. You're experiencing sadness or anxiety more often, and you're wondering if you will ever feel truly happy and content. Life feels really, really hard right now.

In our work together, you can develop more self-compassion and self-acceptance. You can gain clarity. You can grow a deeper, more fulfilling connection to yourself and others. You can form more healthy thought patterns that support you in your growth. You can begin to let go of guilt and shame. You can learn to listen to your own inner wisdom and knowledge. Perhaps most importantly, you can find more presence and meaning in life, allowing you to live more authentically, feel more joy, and experience more wholeness in spite of life's challenges.

With a holistic and integrative approach, I bring my whole heart to therapy utilizing warmth, collaboration, curiosity, and a strength-based lens. I view you as the expert of your life, and myself as a compassionate and supportive guide. I fully believe that being heard, seen, and witnessed nonjudgmentally by another human is one of the most healing experiences we can have – it certainly has been (and continues to be) for me. Being that witness for others is a gift I am grateful for every day. My clients are my heroes.
