Thank you for your interest in my practice! I offer my support to people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, and sexual orientations. I have a focus on clients who are going through large transitions or grief, deal with anxiety and depression, who have experienced trauma and PTSD, and are over all looking to discover their life’s course. A genuine relationship is at the root of my practice. My hope is that my clients feel they can enter the therapy room as their authentic selves and that they feel an authentic person is also sitting in front of them.

Life is full of challenges, but you do not need to walk these paths alone. I have helped many individuals and families by using a collaborative and holistic approach to therapy in order to create an environment that feels safe, nurturing and supportive. As your therapist, we will work together to identity patterns and behaviors that no longer serve a purpose in your life and replace them with new ways of coping with challenges. I practice from a strengths-based approach in order to empower you to make the changes necessary to feel more fulfilled and at peace with your life.

We all have strategies for dealing with stress day-to-day. But over time, many strategies can fall short or even backfire. We may find ourselves withdrawing and avoiding certain aspects of our lives, or overextending and pushing ourselves to the point of exhaustion. This can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, and irritable and can also take a toll on our relationships and physical health. One of my goals as a therapist is to help you identify changes you can make, both big and small, and tap into your motivation to follow-through on those changes.

As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is place where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.

Many people come to me wondering why they're unhappy, anxious, or unable to find fulfillment. The problem may seem obvious but a solution impossible. The same painful experiences repeat themselves, but why? And how to change them? If we meet, I will try to understand you as fully as I can and to help you come to grips with your problems. In doing so, you may discover, as sometimes happens, that there are ways to experience yourself and others that are genuinely different from what you've known thus far.

Feeling lost, abandoned, misunderstood, or exiled can lead to a disconnection from the soul. When we feel like no one wants us, we begin to abandon ourselves. We all have parts we dislike, often as a result of harmful messages we internalized from our families and society. The darkest parts of ourselves are often the most frightening, and consequently, the most rejected and ignored. It's in the darkness where we find pieces of ourselves we left behind, pieces that long to be loved and accepted. I’m here to tell you that every part of you is welcome in our work together. You are not alone, and you don't have to hide anymore.
