"When people make the courageous step to start therapy, they usually know they want a change, but may feel unsure about what to change or how to change it. Perhaps you’ve found yourself stuck in old emotional patterns, struggling to make satisfying connections with others or manage complex feelings from past traumas. You may be striving to live openly and authentically, but unsure how to take the next step toward a more fulfilling life. As a counseling psychologist, I am trained to help you clarify what you want from life, let go of the emotional patterns that no longer serve you, and live with greater purpose and fulfillment."

"Although beginning therapy and delving deeper into the inner workings of your life can initially be fearful, it is a courageous act and an opportunity for growth and a new understanding of who you are. I believe that the foundation of any effective therapeutic work is a genuine therapeutic relationship based on trust, honesty, and empathy, and I value creating an environment with you that facilitates this. My approach is collaborative, supporting you in exploring difficult thoughts, feelings and relational patterns that may have previously felt too overwhelming to embark on alone."
