I believe that healing often occurs best in the context of a safe and trusting relationship between a client and therapist. As a psychotherapist, I strive to create a secure, caring, and collaborative relationship with each of my clients so that therapy is a place they feel fully seen, heard, understood, and respected. I work from an integrative and holistic perspective, meeting each client where they are and working collaboratively with clients to reach their own personal goals and to create lasting, meaningful change and healing in their lives.

I want my clients to feel empowered and free to explore themselves and grow into the person they wish to become. I am calm, warm, and active.

I believe in self-reflection and helping others to become their authentic selves. When we know and understand ourselves, we can begin to regain control, have the types of relationships that we believe we deserve, and choose our own paths in life. My clinical interests include anxiety, trauma and PTSD, relationship concerns, LGBTQ issues, worry and perfectionism, and family discord. I am an integrative therapist that most often utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while incorporating other evidence-based treatment approaches.

Many people choose to enter therapy to gain a deeper understanding of themselves – their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in addition to problems in their interpersonal relationships.  Oftentimes, the issues we face in the present stem from painful experiences in the past.  As a result of these experiences, we develop ways of coping in the world – some continue to serve us well and others may get in the way of us living a more fulfilling life. I offer a warm, non-judgmental, and safe environment for exploration, healing, and growth.

During therapy consultations, most people say that they want a therapist who won't just sit there and nod at them. That makes a lot of sense to me. Starting with a new therapist takes a lot of courage and most of us wouldn't do it unless we need real help. Most hurt and trauma happens in our relationships with others and in order for therapy to help, you need to be able to trust that your therapist is with you. When.you talk with me, you have my full attention. We'll make connections between what's happening now and what happened in your past experiences. We'll also work on feeling less shame and developing a feeling of safety
