About

It is an immense privilege every day to work side by side and collaboratively with my clients assisting them in handling the challenges they are facing in their lives and relationships. I look forward to supporting you as together we will navigate your new path toward much greater satisfaction and peace in your own life or your relationship. Whether you are looking to begin counseling individually, alongside a partner, or with other members of your family, I am here to help you in defining your goals and in identifying the patterns or obstacles that are hindering you from living the life or relationship you want and so deserve.
When working with clients experiencing anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship/marital issues or any life challenges we may be working on together, I prioritize holding a judgment-free space where clients feel both comfortable and safe. I work with clients from a variety of cultural and diverse backgrounds and am a safe space ally for the LGBTQ+ community.
I utilize a systemic approach to therapy in which I help you explore how the many aspects of your life or relationship influence the issues you are currently facing. Whether you have experience talking with a therapist or this is the first time, I welcome answering any questions you may have about the process and helping you take the steps toward your goals.
