When people seek therapy there is often a need to understand who we are, how we relate to others and our role in this world. As your therapist, I will provide a safe space where you can uncover the experiences that have shaped you and brought you to where you are today. Together we will embark on a journey to reconnect you to your true self and increase your satisfaction with your life.
Every person deserves a space in their lives in which they feel heard, acknowledged, accepted, and safe. Finding the "right" therapist, and imagining how it might feel to open up to someone new can be difficult, and at times emotionally draining. In understanding some of these challenges, I place great importance on facilitating a comfortable and non-judgmental space in which clients feel comfortable being vulnerable. I take a person-centered and strengths-based approach to therapy, and believe that the creation of a strong therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is one of the most important aspects of our work
Welcome! Whether you have experience going to therapy or are just getting started, you deserve to live with joy and presence. You deserve to feel understood, heard, and held in a space free of judgment. Together, we will define what living a full, authentic life means to you and uncover ways to get there, understanding your sources of discomfort and pain and celebrating your resilience and strengths.
