About My Clients

Most of the clients that I work with find themselves feeling stuck amid a challenge. A traumatic event from childhood that prevents them from breaking out of unhealthy cycles. Debilitating anxiety and depression that makes every simple task unmanageable. A major life transition that flipped their world upside down. Reaching out for support may seem like the most difficult task, but it will be the first step in your healing journey.

My Background and Approach

The relationship between the therapist and client is one of the most integral factors in therapy. I offer my clients a relationship that is based on empathetic attunement, honesty, and acceptance. While my approach is informed by psychodynamic thinking, I recognize that each individual, couple, and family is unique and there is no “one size fits all” solution to healing. My goals as a therapist are to help clients explore different facets of themselves and offer new insights. Ultimately, I work to empower my clients to dive deep, address fears, and live a value driven life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We all have challenges that may feel like they are too big to overcome on our own. It is not a burden to share those challenges and allow others to take part in our healing.
