About

As Dr. Irvin D. Yalom says, client and therapist are "fellow travelers" and I would love to travel with you on this journey. I believe you have the strength and power to change your life, but sometimes stuff gets in the way. I want to help you remove those blocks! I'm a relational therapist who uses attachment theory, some cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a dash of dialectic behavior therapy (DBT), and quite a bit of humor in the therapy room. How do we get started on this journey together?
I understand that starting therapy with someone new can feel overwhelming and anxiety-inducing even for those who have been in therapy before. I offer a free 15-minute consultation so that we determine if we're a good fit. We'll also discuss how we'll spend our time together and your goals and expectations for therapy. We'll take it at a speed best for you.
Please contact me if you are 18+ and looking for individual therapy or couples+ therapy. I have a passion for working with: Sexuality and Gender Identity, including letters for gender affirming care. Burnout, professional development, and life skills development. As well as Anxiety/Depression.
