Every person has their own unique process of healing and growth. Psychotherapy is a valuable pathway towards finding balence and wholeness in your life. As your therapist, I approach my work with profound respect for your individual nature, values, and beliefs. Psychotherapy is essentially a collaborative process, in which we work together to explore the difficulties you're facing and to find solutions that will work for you. When the essence of your 'self' is truly understood, real possibilities for meaningful change can emerge. My goal is to support your journey as you move towards a more fulfilling and authentic life.

I believe it takes courage to contact someone for help. Trusting and confiding in a stranger, as well as facing why we are unhappy, takes a leap of faith. I understand the difficulties in taking this leap and will create a safe and respectful space in which we can mutually collaborate to help you explore the obstacles which prevent you from reaching your potential and living a more satisfying life. I will listen carefully to your thoughts, memories and feelings to help identify how the past is alive in the present. Understanding this can make change possible.

The lotus flower is the only flower that seeds and blooms simultaneously. The lotus is rooted in muddy water, developing in the midst of thick struggle and obstacles. When the lotus emerges, it cleans the water, transforming its environment. This is where it blooms seeking the light of the sun while sending out seeds of possibility into the world. The lotus symbolizes cause and effect teaching us that each action we take will produce a result and that we contain all the material needed to mend/heal unresolved wounds and traumas.

Making the decision to start therapy can come with apprehension. I believe your best judgement guided you to search for the right therapist. I have a direct and compassionate style of working with children, adolescents, college students, and adults. I assist clients in reducing anxiety and depression in order to feel confident, achieve a healthier sense of self, and live in accordance to their values. I believe honoring one's intuition is the key to healing- whether that be through play therapy, creative art interventions, or talk therapy. I enjoy helping others explore their identity and to accept various parts of themselves.

It allows for there to be space to sit with our innermost thoughts and feelings as we bear witness to the courageous process towards renewal and growth.
