[Not currently accepting new clients]. I provide a safe and compassionate environment for clients to examine their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. When an individual is struggling with their mental health, it impacts their ability to maintain healthy relationships with loved ones, & overall daily functioning. I have a passion for developing a strong therapeutic relationship in order to ensure the utmost empathy and unconditional positive regard for my clients. Together, we will work towards understanding and regulating emotions, focusing on the self, and engaging in coping strategies that promote a positive, healthier mind, and stronger self-esteem.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. When people experience emotional pain or are struggling with their relationship to themselves, it can affect all areas of their lives. My passion is bringing understanding and healing to people struggling with these wounds. I help my clients find healthy perceptions of themselves, grow in self-worth, understand the origins of their wounds, and overcome the strong emotions that they evoke.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. Every person has had difficult moments in their life. This is one of the things that bonds us as human beings. We all have things in common, such as feeling the same emotions, dealing with similar situations, or having similar ways of thinking. Though we share these commonalities, each person has their own experiences that are unique to them. This is the perspective I take when it comes to my therapy practice. Each client brings their own unique set of needs and experiences, which needs a unique and individualistic therapy approach, different from the next client.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. One of the most courageous things we can do is to begin to understand our own story. What often precedes healing, however, is profound confusion and discomfort which deters us from delving deeper within. The process of growth is often accompanied by fear of the unknown and thus, can appear a daunting task. But you are not alone. My goal is to walk alongside you as you come to know yourself and navigate the path to a happier, healthier life. More importantly, what are your goals? What makes you feel safe? Therapy strengthens our insight by compassionately confronting ourselves with questions we have never dared to ask ourselves before.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. Being human is hard. In addition to daily challenges, many of us weren’t shown how to feel and express our emotions, or how to communicate effectively with others. We may not have learned what healthy love looks and feels like, or how to care for and accept ourselves—because often, our caregivers hadn’t learned how to either. As a result, we often find ourselves experiencing painful emotions such as shame, anger, longing, worry, or hopelessness. Therapy is an opportunity to explore our experiences with curiosity and kindness, allowing us to gain insight into, make meaning of, and heal from the burdens we carry.

Life often comes with many unexpected challenges and we can often feel overwhelmed by big feelings and life events. Sometimes this can lead us to feeling stuck, not knowing which steps to take to move forward in life. I create a safe and supportive environment where we can explore life’s challenges together. My goal is to help guide you through processing your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and learn healthier ways of coping with life’s stressors.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. Perhaps you're feeling stuck, worried or afraid. Maybe you've never felt heard or understood. Maybe you've reached a point in your life that something doesn't feel right or something has to change and you're just not sure what to do. If this is the case, then talking it through in a safe space is the next step.  I believe beginning therapy is a courageous step toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the best life possible, no matter what challenges you may be facing.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. When roadblocks, difficult emotions or major transitions present themselves in life, we have an opportunity to grow. Therapy is a space to gain perspective, examine our lives, and engage in purposeful movement forward. My passion as a therapist is to see individuals tap into their own unique gifts and strengths as they create a life that brings them meaning. I believe that one of the most essential parts of the therapy process is a sense of safety to be oneself while working with someone who genuinely cares. This creates a backdrop from which you can explore thoughts and emotions and thrive in the uncertainty of change.

My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to be able to work on problems and stressors that they are currently facing. I will work with you to create a trusting therapeutic relationship, which will allow us to get to the root of your symptoms. I use mindfulness, empathy, respect, and sometimes even humor to help create this alliance. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I am trained to help you learn how your behavior affects not only yourself, but your relationship as part of a couple and family.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. I see therapy as food for the soul. It is nourishment that one receives by having the opportunity to open themselves and hear their own thoughts, words out loud so they can be heard, validated, understood. Therapy does not have to be complicated. It is a building block to strengthen our core and feel confident in our abilities to face the challenges.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. As life moves forward with its many demands of time and energy, therapy is a place to slow down and reconnect with who you are and where you are right now. Together we can explore your experience both internally and externally, and process any hardships which may disrupt your sense of peace and ability to move towards the person and life you wish to embody. Words and emotions can carry deep meanings, so as a therapist, my priority is not only to listen, but to truly hear you. In that, I aim to support your path of discovering and becoming more aligned with what fulfills you most in your life.

[Not currently accepting new clients]. “We are all in this together and there is no therapist and no person immune to the inherent tragedies of existence” (Irvin Yalom).  Each and every one of us has a story that we develop and carry throughout our lives.  Each and every one of us will experience hardships that can be part of living, i.e, life transitions, death of a loved one, loneliness, broken relationships, inequitable and/or abusive treatment, etc.,. And each of these experiences is interpreted by us and adds to the story of what our lives look like and how we believe it will unfold.

The first step is talking with someone compassionate who listens and tries to understand the world from your perspective. I know the importance of the relationship between therapist and client; therefore, I take a client-centered approach. Being able to tell your story and process it is the first step toward healing and initiating change. My approach is integrative, where I employ different therapeutic modalities to meet your unique needs best.
