Conversations have the power to heal. I’ve witnessed that time and time again. As a therapist, my primary goal is to develop a strong relationship with my clients and create a supportive environment where they can explore their deepest concerns.

My approach to therapy is guided by the belief that no matter how much you might feel like you’re stuck in a box or confined to only one path in life, there’s always another way. But sometimes it takes a good guide to steer you in the right direction. That’s where I come in.

I take a holistic approach to wellness that focuses on mind, body, and spirit, as well as core relationships in your life. To help clients achieve achieve meaningful change, I use a variety of empirically-supported techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Brief Psychodynamic Therapy.

I am currently accepting new clients and provide individual, couples, and group psychotherapy. I also offer online video conference sessions.
