As a psychotherapist, I know that initiating change can be exciting and extremely challenging. I am dedicated to supporting you through the challenges that come along with the excitement of growing and changing. My commitment is to help you understand and accept all aspects of yourself, and to feel more connected to those around you.

I use a highly empathetic, relationship-based approach, that is focused on symptom relief. You will learn to manage the extreme emotional states that often result from past trauma or loss, and to cultivate the skills needed to increase your overall Emotional Intelligence.

In addition, my experience has given me a deep understanding of the relationship between human beings and the social institutions in which we interact. Our work will connect your personal goals to core principles of justice and mutual understanding, to help you create greater effectiveness in your life.
