I am passionate about helping couples and individuals grow and thrive, improving communication, working through trauma, and identifying and achieving goals. I understand that seeking therapy can be daunting, but there is hope. Whether you are experiencing relationship issues, trauma, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, low self-esteem, grief/loss, larger existential exploration or questions of identity, you don't have to work through it alone. In addition to therapy, I also provide clinical supervision to those seeking their LPC and LCSW.

I understand the need for emotional safety and trustworthiness in a therapist, working with clients to regain a sense of empowerment in their lives. My style is eclectic, but I strongly pull from the Gottman Method and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to help clients stop fighting against the pain of their past, and build rich and meaningful lives.

I believe every person holds the capacity for change, and can benefit from a trusting, supportive therapist to help them acknowledge and ignite that ability within themselves. I consider the clients as the experts in their lives, and trust that a positive client/therapist relationship is key to facilitating change.
