"Hello and welcome! As a therapist, my aim is to build empathic relationships and empower clients to create meaningful change. I appreciate working with clients that understand that change is a process, motivated to do the work in and out of the session, and enjoy being in a collaborative relationship. I believe that therapy is a process where you can gain tools to address life's challenges, gain insight, determine what you'd like to change about it, work towards making those changes while navigating all the thoughts, feelings and emotions that may come up in the process.

"My approach to therapy is interactive, collaborative, and reflective. Individuals often seek counseling when they have reached an impasse in life. Problems of depression, anxiety, or negative behaviors frequently reflect a loss of purpose or meaning. Stress and insecurity may affect how one handles day-to-day interpersonal and work situations. I work with individuals to explore their current life issues in the context of their past experiences and help them to develop new ways of being or interacting in relationships."

"Asking for help is hard. It can be difficult to open up to a new person about fears, insecurities, and personal history. Given these challenges, I work to provide a safe environment for clients to explore worries, feelings of sadness or hopelessness, or just a general sense of being "stuck." Together we can develop immediate coping strategies as well as meaningful, future-focused change. My practice is grounded in social justice and feminism, and I have a passion for working with women. I use a strengths-based, trauma-informed, cognitive behavioral approach that incorporates evidence-based practices, empathy, and humor."

They have the power to move us emotionally, to educate and instruct, to entertain us, and to cultivate true compassion and empathy through the act of sharing a story with another.

"If you're considering working with a therapist, then chances are you're struggling with some aspect of your life. The challenges that motivate people to seek the support of a therapist generally fall into four categories: you're confronting something new, something unpredictable, something you can't control, or something that is threatening your sense of who you are. The mission of my practice is twofold: to provide you with a safe environment to navigate the difficulties that bring you to therapy and to help you learn more about yourself in the process."
