Great to meet you!

I work with adults over 21 who have mood disorders including but not limited to anxiety, depression, bipolar and relationship issues. My practice is diverse and accepting of all ethnicities. I’m also proud to say that I’ve been working with alternative sexual lifestyles such as BDSM, fetish, polyamorous and open marriages; long before it was fashionable.

As a trauma informed therapist, we'll be sure to look at your past, without re-traumatizing,

A bit about my approach to therapy

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is ultra important. You have to feel safe. I’m aware that most likely you are hurting right now. I’ll do my best to make you feel comfortable, relaxed and at home.

I provide tools taken from CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Structural Dissociation parts work and of course talk therapy.

What you can expect from our first session

You and I will talk about the therapy process and how it works. You’ll have an opportunity to tell me your expectations. Together, we’ll reach a clear understanding about how our relationship will work and what to expect.

Don’t be surprised if tears fall. It just seems to happen because more than likely you’ve been doing your best to keep on, going on. It’s a relief to finally let go with someone who gets you. Don't worry, I’ll always do my best to go slow and help you feel better.
