About

I believe therapy can be incredibly transformative and I am passionate about helping others to live rich and meaningful lives. Depression, fear, anxiety, and self-limiting beliefs can keep us from living the life we desire. If you’re feeling stuck and overwhelmed, or perhaps you’ve been sleepwalking through life, feeling unfulfilled, and wanting more, please reach out. Whatever it is, we will work through it together and create lasting change in your life. My approach to counseling is integrative, collaborative, and relational. My style is warm, but direct and honest (and I often use humor, as I find it to be so healing).
As a certified yoga teacher, I have a holistic lens and a deep understanding of the connection between physical, mental, and emotional health. I draw from various modalities to fit your specific needs. Above all, I’m committed to creating a space that allows you to discover your authentic voice and potential.
I strive to provide inclusive and affirming therapy for clients from all backgrounds. My current areas of practice include, but are not limited to: anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, life transitions, trauma, grief, LGBTQIA+, and self-esteem difficulties. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to connecting with you!
