I help individuals and couples discover healing from painful experiences, empowerment and a greater sense of self esteem, & a deeper connection within themselves and their relationships.
You can experience more fulfillment in your life and relationships! I’m here to support you.
I’m the type of therapist who will be there for you for both the challenging and amazing moments in therapy. My clients are free to be their true selves as we move towards the life and relationships you want.
There are a million reasons why someone might choose to go to therapy, all of them are good reasons. Whether you’re feeling distant and disconnected, isolated and hurt, insecure and unloved, each struggle you face is worthy of exploration and deserving of healing.
During the many phases of life, relationships with our families, friends, and partners can change.
I believe in creating a non-judgmental space for couples and individuals to safely explore difficult emotions, thoughts, and patterns.
I am committed to truly understanding you, your story, and where you’d like to go next.
I believe therapy is a collaborative process. Together, we will work to help you gain new insights, heal wounds both old and new, and experience growth and empowerment.
Whether you’re beginning therapy for the first time or starting again, it can be intimidating. And while I can’t promise it will always be easy, I promise to meet you with warmth, patience, and a good sense of humor.
I have experience working with young and middle-aged adults struggling with anxiety and depression, personal and family relationships, finding healing post-breakup, and experiencing difficult life changes.
First and foremost, my work is client-centered. I strive to build meaningful relationships with my clients to help foster resilience and confidence. I recognize the courage it takes to engage in therapy and believe that no matter what brings you, you are deserving of love and acceptance.
I am of the philosophy that if we do anything for just one hour per week, we won’t be very good at it. I often use therapeutic techniques and engaging tools to help clients build their strengths, challenge themselves, and explore their emotions both in and outside of the session.
You deserve to live a life you’re proud of. You deserve fulfilling relationships. You deserve to experience peace and healing. I’m here to help you do that.
I welcome anyone regardless of their age, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, class, or ability.
On a personal note…
I am a self-proclaimed Trader Joe’s enthusiast, lover of podcasts, and wannabe tennis player. You can find me doing just about anything to reach my daily step-count, cooking up a great meal for my loved ones, or daydreaming about being the owner to a very cute pitbull one day.
I am excited everyday by the work I do and feel lucky to be part of your journey.
