I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

Sometimes life throws us challenges that are too overwhelming to handle alone.

As your therapist, my priority is that you feel comfortable as we work through these difficulties together. My approach is collaborative, as your voice is equally important. This is your lived experience, and my role is to help guide and gently empower you towards realizing a better version of yourself.

It can be difficult to open up to a stranger about what is going on in your life, but it can also be very liberating to have another person to share your burdens. Whether for depression, anxiety, trauma or adjusting to life's challenges (and our changing world), counseling can offer insight and healing.

I appreciate the difficulties facing those struggling to find their "niche," be it career or otherwise as well as those who are single, living in a couple's world. Psychotherapy is about life and the problems one is facing rather than a diagnosis. My approach is tailored to meet each person's specific needs.

Through this process, I provide insight and shine light on the inner knowing that is already in you. The goal is to empower you so you can learn to tolerate your own pain with compassion and care, allowing for healing. That is where the power lies, the power to love yourself so that you are able to relate to others with the same compassion and love. I guide you back to your inner voice to cultivate meaningful relationships. We are always evolving, which is a creative, spiritual process.
