I believe in the healing power of relationships. Humans have a biological need to feel safety through social connection. Disconnection in relationships can leave anyone feeling hopeless. Together, we will look at your relationship to self and how this impacts navigating relationships with others. If you have difficulty having a healthy relationship to your body and food, I am also pursuing a certification in intuitive eating principles and often integrate these into my practice with clients. Intuitive eating focuses on making peace with food, finding true satisfaction in eating, and learning to honor your hunger and fullness cues.

For me, the most important aspects of psychotherapy are safety and the relationship. I understand the need to feel supported before sharing. Many of my clients have experienced depression, trauma, anxiety, and life stress; my goal as your clinician is to help you process your concerns and bear witness to your growth. I enjoy working with those who are eager to deepen their understanding of themselves and their emotional functioning.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Clinical Psychology and graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. My therapy approach is taken from an attachment theory and perspective. I believe humans are wired to feel connected, and that we all greatly benefit from healthy relationships. Without this connectedness, we may experience loneliness or isolation. I provide a safe, accepting space for individuals, couples, and families using a positive Existential Therapy Model to support self-awareness, meaningful relationships, and values of life.
