Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues, and Trauma

Great to meet you!

As a licensed clinical therapist, I specialize in depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, phase of life transitions, relationships, and overall well-being. I am trained in psychoanalytic psychotherapy and acceptance and commitment therapy. I believe in working collaboratively and holistically with the goal of helping clients find fulfillment, build nurturing patterns, and release sabotaging behaviors.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Person-centered care is the foundation of my clinical practice and I know no two persons are alike. I believe in meeting an individual where they are in order to build a strong therapeutic bond that implements change and growth and I seek to offer a nonjudgmental and empathic approach that engages in the process of healing in a manner that is both restorative and informative

What you can expect from our first session

Client can expect to take away from participating in sessions with me is a to discover a deeper understanding of themselves to make the best informed decisions for themselves to lead a meaningful and impactful life.
