About

Welcoming you as a whole person in being yourself. I work with people who are in career transitions, recovering type-A personalities, and high-performance people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, trauma and stressor-related experiences, and many forms of transformative life experiences. I also work w/ multicultural issues including third-culture, diverse international culture, and military/veterans/expats. I specialize working with individuals, couples/partners, and families who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, life transitions, and challenges with relationships at home & work.
In our session together, my hope is to be your confidant in what it is that you are experiencing, exploring, and learning about yourself. I believe that all people are inherently whole from pre-birth, birth and through our developmental growth to knowledge of ourselves. It is in our most challenging times in life that we find resilience and healing.
Reaching out for support during a challenging and difficult time is okay. My encouragement for you is the experiential knowledge that things can and do get better. With safety, empowerment, self compassion, and a welcoming way of being in a non-judgemental atmosphere, I hope that these elements are just the beginning for you in the therapeutic journey.
