I firmly believe in individualized, customized, evidenced-based care for each and every client. Your experience is unique to you, and I need to respect that by tailoring my approach to fit you and your struggles, specifically. I want each client to be my equal partner in his, her, or their therapy. I tell my clients that while I may be in the passenger seat with the road map to make suggestions, ultimately they are the ones driving the car and they choose where we will go.

Clients tell me they appreciate my laid-back attitude. I try not to take myself too seriously, but I will always, always take you and your struggles seriously. Otherwise there is little point in the therapy.

You have a natural capacity to be a happy and fully actualized person. Just as all our talents need practice and guidance so does your mental wellbeing.

Give yourself permission to take time for your self and talk to someone about everything that is going on. Our lives can be on over drive and it’s best to reflect and breathe.

We will work together to address areas of stress and strain in your life. I am excited to meet you and help you explore, process and energize yourself during every step of this journey.

Making the decision to enter therapy can be really challenging. The idea of talking about things that you may be struggling to find words for or feel embarrassed about can be so hard. Together we'll find a way to give voice to the parts that feel messy and create a space where it feels safe to share your struggles. I'd love to connect to answer any questions and make sure you feel like it's a good fit.

Whatever brought you here, it shows acknowledgement that we are human and awareness of our ability to work through our pains. It takes courage to recognize that additional help is needed and to try something different than you may be used to. Take a moment and appreciate your bravery; this is you trying something new, something you may not have thought about before! I believe we all experience pain in life; what’s important is to identify the healthiest ways to manage it and how to stay present. We can learn to channel our energy into valued living and be productive with our pain. I hope to encourage you to embrace life’s challenges, using your own strengths and internal resources, to move in the direction of growth and valued living. My intention is to provide a safe and motivating space to nurture insight, confidence, and readiness to take action in your life; to build a life you are proud and inspired to live.

Uncertain of what the future holds? Seemingly you have it all together, but deep down you’re filled with worry. You feel out of control and try everything possible to regain control, but it’s not working! Whether you feel pressured by societal expectations or are your own worst critic; life’s ups & downs can feel like a never-ending ride. Maybe it's self-esteem; maybe it's body image; maybe it's relationships or just overwhelming stress... Imagine if you felt balanced again; comfortable in your own skin. Imagine feeling confident and ready to embrace life’s chaos in the healthiest of ways. I can help.

I believe that you can live the life you desire. It starts with awareness that something is ‘stuck’, not working in the way we hoped it would, and willingness to acknowledge the need to reassess and try something different. Yes, it may be easier said than done; however, when you expand awareness of how your inner world is impacting your outer world (and vice versa) it opens up countless directions to choose from, creating opportunities for change and to build the life you truly want to live. When we learn to embrace the rollercoaster of life and to navigate its challenges in healthy ways, we have more energy to act in ways we value and to move in directions of our choice. When we are present, confident to take on the good and the bad, we have the ability, power, and space to create a life that is meaningful, joyful, and genuine. I hope to support you in your journey, providing you with the skills and insight needed, to grow and achieve your goals!

As a recovering perfectionist, I’ve been where you are. I know how scary it feels to let your guard down and ask for help, especially when you’re the person others rely on and look to for support. But you are not alone. This is the same place where I and all my clients started from. I would love to help you step away from the pressure of constant self-improvement and to learn to be confident in yourself and your decisions.

I offer a free video consultation to any potential clients. During our consultation, I will be able to learn more about your main areas of concern and answer any questions you may have. If you do not see a consult time that works for you, please email, text, or call me and we can find a better time. I respond to all inquires and usually the same day.

It takes courage to take care of your emotional health by committing to weekly therapy and learning new ways to relate to yourself and others. My job is to provide a mirror to reflect back to you what I hear you say and do in a nonjudgmental and empathic manner so together we can strengthen your emotional, mental and physical self. Investing in therapy is investing in yourself.
