As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is place where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.

Breakthroughs in therapy are first and foremost the result of the therapist/client relationship. I strive to offer therapy that feels like coffee with a dedicated friend. Blending wisdom from my own experiences as a peer who has “been there” with clinically based methods, I’ll meet you halfway with reflection, kindness, and honest feedback. No judgement - just healing. I also offer individual white privilege self work sessions for those seeking to begin a practice of racial self awareness.

Being driven to succeed can be a mixed blessing. On the one hand, your strong work ethic and drive towards accomplishment have probably gotten you to where you are today—possibly even in the face of major challenges or hardships. On the other hand, when our self-worth is defined by our productivity, it can feel very fragile. Anxiety, burnout, chronic stress, and difficulty prioritizing ourselves and our relationships is often the result. I work with students and professionals who are navigating these challenges to develop healthier, more balanced relationships with themselves, their careers, and the important people in their lives.
