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.

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.

About Me

My style is primarily psychodynamic with an integration of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, depending on your specific needs. I see everyone I work with as embodying a fully unique perspective that I am privileged to explore with them. I am most often described as having an extremely warm, compassionate and friendly demeanor.


Starting therapy is a courageous step. I would love to hear from you and talk more about what you are looking for, as well as how we might be able to work together to meet your goals. You are welcome to reach out with any questions or for a free phone consultation.
