Message to clients

I provide supportive, strength-based therapy for clients facing a variety of mental health challenges. Whether you have a specific issue or are curious to explore yourself more, I will support you in diving deeper into yourself and the world around you to release old patterns and habits, identify places you feel stuck or held back, and create the life you want to be living. My style is warm and affirming with an emphasis on empowering clients. I value down-to-earth communication, humor when appropriate, and authenticity.

My role as therapist includes being a guide and support on your unique journey, utilizing both creative expression and talk therapy depending on your needs and level of comfort. I believe that real change happens when we connect mind and body, allowing us to explore places that hold us back, and reconnect with ourselves to live a more full and joyful life.

Taking the leap to engage in the therapeutic process is making the beautifully radical statement that you are going to prioritize your own needs so that you can be a more engaged, fulfilled, & peaceful version of yourself. I hope our work together provides you with the opportunity to reflect, work through obstacles, & take the time and space you deserve.
