Are you looking to strengthen and improve your relationships? I believe that the quality of our relationships directly impacts the quality of our lives. My goal as a therapist is to help my clients increase their awareness of themselves and their relationships while providing skills to help them improve areas of their life. Whether you are looking to learn coping skills, work on healthy communication, identify negative behavior patterns within yourself or a relationship, or just need a safe place and someone to talk to, I work with you to help you achieve your goals. ​ I am an LGBTQ+-affirming therapist and I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds. My clinical experience includes, but is not limited to, working with issues of anxiety and depression; relationship struggles; life transitions; pre-marital stress; divorce and discernment; infidelity and sexual dysfunction. ​ I believe that people are able to make positive and effective changes in their own lives. Sometimes in order to make these changes it is helpful to work through and process our past to gain a better understanding of ourselves. If you are looking to reconnect with yourself and those around you, let me help you along the way.

Do you ever find yourself saying "It is not supposed to be this way"? At times we have all felt lost in life, or found ourselves in a place we do not wish to be. Whether it be at the hands of trauma, loss of self-esteem, familial discord, or failed relationships, sometimes we all need some guidance getting back to our best version of ourselves. ​ I utilize Somatic and Experiential Theory based techniques to create a holistic approach to working on treatment goals. I have experience working with couples, individuals, and families with an emphasis on communication, rebuilding trust, intimacy, anxiety, depression, trauma, and body-image/self esteem concerns. ​ I take a compassionate, client centered approach to therapy. I use my warmth to help create a safe place where the most vulnerable parts of yourself feel welcomed into the therapy room. My focus is on helping you get back in touch with your inner self and ensuring your life is one that aligns with your inner most hopes and dreams.

There are times in our lives when we are presented with challenges that seem overwhelming, and our usual ways of coping are no longer working. This can make us feel sad, lonely, confused, and depressed. Sometimes, we feel like no one understands our pain and we don’t want to burden others with our problems. If this sounds like you, it may be time to give therapy a try. I offer a safe space free from judgment to explore your struggles whether it is individually, as a couple, or with your family. Through curiosity, empathy, and experiential interventions, we will work together to uncover the present patterns that are keeping you stuck and create new ways of being which leads to increased resilience, improved functioning, and enhanced growth. ​ I enjoy empowering my clients to realize they are capable of making changes by working collaboratively on problem-solving and developing goals that are attainable and permanent. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families from different backgrounds facing issues such as: anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, life transitions, sexual abuse, trauma, grief and loss, parenting concerns, ADHD, self-esteem, women’s issues, PTSD, and career struggles. Additionally, I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman Method Couples Therapy which I use with my couples experiencing relationship distress. ​ Reaching out for help can be difficult but rewarding. I strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere where you feel accepted and valued. I look forward to walking alongside you on this journey.
