The world today is so loud with everything and everyone buzzing in your ear telling you how to live your life or how you are "doing things wrong". You care so much about others' needs and wants that maybe you forget your own. Or that you have a voice. Or that you can take up space. Your emotions may feel out of control which may make you feel not like yourself. "What's wrong with me?" you might ask. I want to help you create a quiet space for reflection on what YOU want your life to be like. Giving you permission to fully be un-apologetically you.
As a therapist, I specialize in supporting clients through a range of emotional challenges, including anxiety, grief, trauma, abuse, relationship transitions, and depression. My expertise lies in providing compassionate guidance and tailored interventions to promote healing and growth.
For new clients, I explain that coming into therapy for the first time is similar to unpacking a puzzle and slowly putting it back together. This can be an intimidating and vulnerable form of self-expression but we start where you feel the most comfortable and by doing so you are already taking the first steps towards a deeper understanding of yourself.

I work with clients who are experiencing anxiety and depression as they navigate relationship transitions, boundary setting, and finding strategies to boost their self-esteem and emotional control. We establish a rapport within the first few weeks and talk about the obstacles preventing them from realizing their inner potential to design the life they desire.

In my work with clients, I frequently combine Psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems, and mindfulness. Since I don't think there is a one-size-fits-all strategy, I customize my approaches to meet my clients where they are. Relationship building is another important aspect of my approach to help my clients re-learn how to communicate well with others and with themselves.
