About

Most of us will find ourselves struggling at some point. Maybe you are suffering from crushing depression or debilitating anxiety or drowning in waves of grief. Maybe you need help navigating a life transition or important relationship. Some may long to heal past hurts. Or perhaps you are simply overwhelmed by life’s many stressors. It is often at these times that we seek out therapy.
I've come to believe, through my experiences as both therapist and client, that the seemingly simple act of devoting time and energy toward oneself and one’s challenges can be transformative. Therapy can be an opportunity to get to know those hidden parts of ourselves through honest self-expression and exploration in a safe, non-judgmental relational space.
I work psychodynamically with a focus on the various systems and social forces that impact our personal struggles. In practice, I seek to help clients find patterns in their emotions, thoughts, and beliefs in order to gain insight into their current self. I look forward to joining you on your journey toward greater well-being and understanding.
