Great to meet you!

Do you ever get caught off guard by a feeling that seems to come out of the blue? In some cases, you can "power through it" and not let it impact you too much, but other times it seems to paralyze you. In these times of paralysis, a little voice shows up and says "You shouldn't feel that way" or some version of "toughen up". While these ideas seem good in theory, they just don't take into account these feelings that are present. Therapy presents us with an opportunity to change the narrative.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My greatest strength as a therapist is my calm and welcoming demeanor. I have a way of making therapy very conversational and relational. Therapy can be very "clinical" and full of big words and ideas that many clients are not interested in. My goal is to translate my education and clinical expertise into a conversational tone that allows you to discover your opportunities for healing in a safe and non-judgemental space.

What you can expect from our first session

My clients can expect a conversational and friendly environment free of shame and judgement. As we build a rapport and learn to relate to each other, I will deliver individualized methods for healing in the way that works best for you.
