I work hard to show up authentically as a companion on your journey.

I focus on authenticity, transparency and connection as we collaboratively decide how to focus your time in treatment. Relational psychodynamic therapy investigates root causes of your symptoms and attempts to understand them in a holistic manner so that you can live a more intentional life.
