"Anxiety, Addiction, or Depression might have you feeling like you've lost touch with the life you really want. The daily struggle is exhausting and you just want to feel better already. You might feel alone in all this, but I promise you're not. I help people just like you learn concrete tools and strategies to achieve the life you want. It's ok if you aren't sure what you want. We can figure it out together and build a roadmap for how to get there. I believe that the most important thing that a client needs is a therapist who is nonjudgmental, compassionate, relatable, and down to earth - so I work hard to embody these qualities. "

"It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!"

I value creating a space for my clients where anything can be said and explored without fear of judgment. I love helping individuals identify and embrace all parts of themselves, even their "shadow side" (the stuff we try to hide). This process can lead to greater empowerment and authenticity.
