Message to clients

Therapy is a collaborative activity in which we work together in a safe environment to help you become a healthier and more satisfied version of yourself. My approach aims to partner with you to identify what challenges and pain points you may have and unlock the potential within you to heal, recover, or move beyond those roadblocks.

Let me be your advocate. Some of the systems within our environment can cause continued difficulty, stress, or trauma. I work with clients to identify these dynamics when they occur and help them develop skills to manage or change what’s within their control. Ultimately, I help empower them to live lives of health, safety, and fulfillment.
