Something intensely challenging probably brought you here and I’m grateful that you’re looking into support. I am a clinical social worker who believes in the human capacity for resilience, compassion, and healing. I work collaboratively with my clients on successfully living with and healing from the effects of stress, illness, loss, and trauma. Sometimes having more tools and skills to better manage daily life are what’s required, and other times deeper work can allow for heavy burdens and old beliefs to transform as life’s experiences are processed and integrated.

I believe that people are naturally resilient, possessing a deep well of inner strength. Every experience, past and present, is relevant to therapeutic work, and I strive to create a collaborative space to explore the things that weigh us all down. I approach each session with empathy, curiosity and an open mind, and encourage you to approach your own relationships, thoughts, and day-to-day life the same way. My relational approach to therapy is strongly rooted in the psychodynamic tradition, bringing in narrative and mindfulness techniques to meet the specific needs of each person I work with.

When we truly know ourselves, the underlying motivations for our actions, and the subconscious fears that drive us, we can begin to exercise more control over our lives and move towards self-actualization. Mental illness is often defined through a lens of dysfunction, yet, even if we were able to remove all of the dysfunction from one's life, the experience of needing support would still be present for many people. My goal is not only to make sure my clients are functioning at their best, but also that they feel strong, genuine, and intentional while doing it.
