"Therapy is something I truly believe we all can benefit from at some point and time in our lives. It is a place and space where we can unload all that we carry day-to-day, whether it be work and family stressors to past traumas. In learning to be vulnerable, we get the opportunity to explore who we truly are and what we might want or need for ourselves. It is my ultimate goal to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space to allow for this kind of vulnerability and exploration. My work has focused on children and family relationships, attachment, trauma, addiction, immigration, impact of stress, and much more. "

"Most of us lug around a suitcase full of our thoughts, feelings, family history and past experiences and have no idea what's in there. Our current responses to and experience of life come from the contents of that suitcase. Together in therapy we gently unpack it. We will see what is working for you, what needs more support and what has served it's purpose but no longer works. I work collaboratively and am curious about all the things that make you who you are. I am particularly interested in working with people who feel misunderstood or unimportant."
