About Me

I'm a relational therapist specializing in treating grief & loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, & parent-child relationships with adolescents & adults. Feeling stuck in a particular area of life such as your relationships, school/work, identity, or emotions? Sometimes we find ourselves repeating old habits that no longer serve us. I often work with individuals experiencing issues around shame and self-worth, who view themselves much harsher than the rest of the world. I offer room to explore these patterns with compassionate curiosity and supportive guidance for you to start trying something different – space for a new narrative.


To heal & move forward you first need to feel seen & heard. I listen deeply to carefully integrate different therapeutic approaches based upon what the individual or family needs from me. The human brain is hardwired for relationship & connection, so I work hard to build a safe space for us to explore, learn, & grow together.


There's a wealth of grit & resiliency inside each of us. It's my job to help you build on the internal strengths that already exist in you. Healing, growth, exploration, & change all take place in a secure relationship – including ours. Beginning therapy is an act of hope & a bid for health. Get in touch for a free 20m consultation & let's get started.
