Welcome! I am so happy you are here! If you are looking to find peace and balance in your life, you have come to the right place. I am a firm believer that healing starts within, and together we can work toward your goals and gain clarity on what you need to be the best version of yourself. Asking for help is far from easy, and it shows the strength and desire for change that is necessary for ultimate success in the therapeutic process.
I provide psychotherapy to adolescents and adults who suffer from a variety of mental illnesses. I work with individuals and couples using a patient-focused approach offering psychoeducation, skills-building, crisis intervention, CBT, and DBT mainly for depressive disorders, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and relationship issues.
My goal is to create a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space for clients to express themselves. Taking the first step isn't easy, and healing is possible.

Relationship issues - Understanding one’s wants and needs in relationships; exploring patterns of interaction, addressing concerns, and strengthening satisfaction in relationships and dating
Self-esteem - Cultivating self-compassion, assertiveness, and confidence; developing ways to reduce suffering, anxiety, social withdrawal, and self-neglect
Stress management - Strengthening effective ways of coping with the stress of life and change; managing expectations of self and others
Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse
