Great to meet you!

I hope to provide you with an open, safe, empathetic environment. I will support your goals and provide a comprehensive understanding of your needs.

I am trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT), and EMDR. I work to help you improve interpersonal relationships, regulate emotions, tolerate distress and be more mindful in your day to day life.

I believe we each have a story to tell and I hope to hear and understand your story.

A bit about my approach to therapy

My approach tends to be client driven. It is important to me to meet the needs of my clients and structure our time together to be productive for them.

What you can expect from our first session

People can expect to leave their time with me knowing that they are valued and have a safe, validating space to go and talk.
