Message to clients

Healing is a collaborative process. My goal is to help you live a lighter, more fulfilling life by transforming your mental and emotional health. Therapy revolves around meeting you where you are, and working together to build a customized, holistic treatment plan. My clients understand that mental/emotional well being is pursued through a foundational environment of support, vulnerability and trust. If you have trouble in relationships, suffer from obsessive thought patterns/behaviors, or experience anxiety or potential forms of depression related to specific incidents or general mood, there is a way to wellness, and I'm here to help.
