About My Clients

I have worked with are artists, lawyers, and those looking to find their way. They have struggled with depression, anxiety and overall life stress. I also work with those struggling with work and relationship conflicts. I encourage those who seek an open and non-judgmental ear and those who want to engage in life with pride and confidence. My clients benefit from a mindful and holistic approach mixed with psychodynamic therapy that can help reprocess past and current distressing memories.

This is all done with a mindful approach that allows for acceptance and restructuring of ones thoughts, behaviors, and life interactions. Overall, my work is person centered and based in empathic listening.
