Great to meet you!

I believe in the power of humor and personal connection in all aspects of life. I also believe that rest is an underrated part of recovery. I am direct, welcoming, and empowering and will be fully on your team, supporting you in creating a beautiful and healthy life as you define it. My practice will always be a safe place for every person regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, creed, sexuality, religion, or other. I am LGBTQ+ allied and socially liberal.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Therapy is a collaborative process that requires we trust and respect each other. I believe we heal in relationships and thus, place a heavy emphasis on making you feel seen, heard, and respected in the therapy room. I use several treatment modalities in my work, including CBT, TFT, Existentialism, and Choice Theory. I'm working now to complete trainings in IFS and Gottman Method (Levels 1 and 2).

What you can expect from our first session

My hope is you'll feel empowered within yourself to lead your best and most healthy life. You will be provided with understanding, insight, and coping skills to better manage the more difficult aspects of life.
