Are you feeling lost or stuck? Do you talk down to yourself or question your abilities? Do your experiences of the past or present make life harder? You and I will work together to understand how learning to cultivate awareness and tenderness in your life can guide you to a path of growth, healing, and exploration. We will focus on identifying and moving toward what really matters to you in life and understand how to spend less time with what has not worked for you. There are many ways of doing psychotherapy but we will come together to tailor an approach to improve your quality of life.
My approach is one that intends to impart lasting change beyond the time we spend together. The goal is to help you learn how to foster a new relationship with yourself and the difficulties that arise using several complementary forms of therapy. Integrating these schools of thought allows us to better understand how to approach your unique situation.
The intention I set forth in each meeting will be one of genuine curiosity, warmth, and a place to safely unwind. I balance a compassionate and easygoing directive and nondirective approach that includes questions, observations, and methods to assist on your journey toward a greater sense of well-being. I look forward to meeting and learning more about you!

I mostly work with clients who have struggled to engage in life the way their heart wants to due to chronic anxiety and depression, difficult childhood experiences, and how they view themselves. Although I see many different people with diverse issues, I aim to help everyone understand themselves and their experiences with compassion in an effort to give lasting change and long-term well-being.

I primarily use Acceptance and Commitment therapy but pull from various theories as no one theory can explain the complicated nature of being a person. Additionally, I try to balance an active approach (for example, giving feedback and guiding questions) with giving space for the person to explore their own experiences. I encourage the people I see to learn and express what works best for them.
