"I see people as having rich, complex human emotions that are not well described with overly simple and often stigmatizing diagnostic labels like depression or generalized anxiety. Each person is entirely unique, with their own history, strengths, and challenges. In therapy, I will work with you to better understand yourself. When we can understand why you might be feeling or thinking or acting in a way that is not best for you, we can work together to change it in a way that is tailored to your needs and your circumstances."

"Just as the words of a poem can open our eyes, minds and hearts in ways language otherwise might not be able to, I believe that psychotherapy is a creative process that utilizes language to access psychic terrain that's often inaccessible in our everyday lives. Accessing and exploring this internal terrain in therapy can be both enlightening and transformative."

"We live in a culture that tells us the type of person we need to be. Sometimes these messages start at home as children, but often continue as we grow up. It can be hard to clear away what we've been told and internalized from our own true nature and who we are destined to become. Parts of us have been left behind; authentic selves concealed but not forgotten. I help people to find their voice and claim it as their own. Some for the first time and others in a renewed manner, after they have lost their way."

"Therapy is something I truly believe we all can benefit from at some point and time in our lives. It is a place and space where we can unload all that we carry day-to-day, whether it be work and family stressors to past traumas. In learning to be vulnerable, we get the opportunity to explore who we truly are and what we might want or need for ourselves. It is my ultimate goal to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space to allow for this kind of vulnerability and exploration. My work has focused on children and family relationships, attachment, trauma, addiction, immigration, impact of stress, and much more. "

"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."
