Great to meet you!

My style is always warm, supportive, and non-judgmental. Everyone is welcome here.

A bit about my approach to therapy

As a relational therapist, my sessions are judgement-free, creative and engaging because I want to provide a counseling environment that clients from all walks of life feel comfortable coming to.

I use Psycho-Education, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gottman Method, and Solution-Focused Therapy approaches to work with individuals, teens, couples and families. I often also provide homework as part of therapy.

What you can expect from our first session

I strive to teach my clients "progress not perfection", so we'll set 2-3 goals that we hope to make progress on in our time together. That said, the goals we set are not set in stone, so if we need to change or add new ones...that’s perfectly fine:)
