About

My focus is on working with you to address current challenges, process past difficulties, and develop tools to overcome hurdles in relationships and daily life. I frequently work with individuals going through life changes, experiencing anxiety, depression, and trauma, and couples with communication and conflict concerns. In addition, I work with individuals on the autism spectrum, and parents, including parents of children with disabilities.
My approach is engaged and collaborative. I provide evidence-based, empathetic, and culturally sensitive therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I utilize different therapeutic approaches to best fit your needs and goals. For individuals interested in EMDR, we can discuss if it's a good fit for you as well.
Trust and a connection with your therapist are so important for a positive therapy experience. I welcome phone consultations so that you may see if I can be a good fit for you and your desired goals.
