As a therapist, I work primarily from a relational dynamic perspective and I use human diversity and social justice lenses to further inform my work. This means that I place particular emphasis on emotions and relationships, and that I strive to be emotionally present and available for authentic connection. It is my belief and experience that the work and healing of therapy occur within this connection. Therapy is thus a collaborative process of building an affirming relationship that leads to meaningful change.

Greetings! When life gets to be overwhelming, more than you can handle, or maybe just at a point where you need some professional and unbiased guidance, I can help. My ideal client is someone that is open to allowing me to help them reach their desired goals, and improve their mental and overall well being. My treatment approach is from an ecIectic lens. I am here to meet you where you are. No two people are exactly the same, and as such, they should not be treated with the exact same approach and techniques. I believe that being a competent, and ethical clinician, with great listening skills is paramount to providing optimal care.

Are you feeling confused and isolated due to a loss? It is hard to come to terms with the idea we are grieving. While many people can easily relate grief to the death of a person or pet, suffering, in reality, expands across so many areas that we encounter on a day-to-day basis. Maybe you are going through a breakup or struggling with fertility, or you just found out your favorite coworker is moving to a new company. Perhaps you finished that last sip of wine that you brought back from the trip of a lifetime. There are many reasons to grieve, and unfortunately, when we don't know how to process grief, it can make us feel trapped.
