You are much more more than a diagnosis or category! It is a challenge for us all to make meaning in a chaotic world. I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

It take courage to ask for help and you have taken the first step! We all have struggles. Struggles with each other. Struggles within ourselves. You are the agent of change, but the therapy process is a healing journey we go on together. It is amazing the resilience that we have within ourselves, the innate ability to overcome adversity. Let’s make life feel more manageable. Let’s make life better.
