About My Clients

I welcome all clients who want to learn more about themselves and explore the meaning behind different patterns they may have developed to cope with life's challenges. I believe that therapy is never "one-size-fits-all" and invite clients to collaborate with me in co-creating the framework of therapy and setting goals for our work.

My Background and Approach

With my training and experience in crisis management and psychoanalysis, I bring knowledge of managing both the past and present to help individuals chart a course for self-improvement. My approach is person-centered, using an integrative approach that draws upon a variety of strategies and techniques to meet the unique goals of each individual. Some of the modalities I use include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Existential Therapy, and Trauma-informed therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that truth can always be found by those who seek it. If you’re looking to better understand your past, present, or how you can pursue your future, you’ve already begun the process of discovery. Whether you’re feeling lost, frustrated, or just not sure where to start, this is a space where you can become more aware of what you’re capable of. Together, I hope to help you learn more about yourself, which involves identifying patterns of thinking and feeling that you’ve developed over the course of your life. With an eye on the past to identify how you got to where you are today, we can better understand the present and how it can be changed for a better future.
