We all need help sometimes dealing with life's struggles and challenges. You don't have to go through it alone. I find it takes courage for people to reach out for help and support, and that it is so valuable to invest in yourself to make the time to just be yourself for an hour a week and talk about whatever is important to you without needing to prove yourself or fearing being judged.

With my 15 years of experience as a psychologist and psychotherapist, we will work together to make deep, long-lasting changes to move through your pain and improve the quality of your life. You don't have to let stress, anxiety, anger, trauma, shame, or loss run your life or ruin your relationships. I have had countless clients share with me their appreciation about how much our therapy has improved their lives and made them feel more whole, brave, empowered, and authentic. I look forward to having the opportunity to partner with you in creating a more deep, rich, fulfilling life.

One of my favorite therapist sayings is, "if nothing changes, nothing changes." I sincerely enjoy helping clients explore all of the unique strengths and coping skills that they already know, and then supporting them in discovering and using new skills to improve their mental health. In my practice, connection-building with my clients is extremely important. I always want to create a safe space where any person can feel validated, supported, and understood. All of us deserve the opportunity to feel our best and I would be honored to help you discover what your best looks like.

We are all survivors of something: our childhood, families, career, or a variety of other experiences. You are the expert in your life. My goal is to help you understand your experience and support you in your journey.

Together we create a space to help you listen to your body, heal from the past, and feel more joy in the present. 

If you, or your child, are ready to take that next step in therapy, then I look forward to working with you!
