About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Compassionate, sensitive, caring. I take the role of a skilled helper very seriously, and this is reflected in how my clients describe me.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I focus closely on learning about, and activating, my clients' existing strengths and resiliency. My primary goals as a therapist are to be nonjudgmental and to be aware of the unique needs of all of my clients. I consider my clients to be my equals.

  • Together, we will:

    bond. Early therapy sessions will include exploration of a wide range of topics related to where the client is in their life and where they would like to go. As our work together progresses, we will focus on your strengths and needs.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are struggling with any aspect of their life, past and present. When people feel overwhelmed, they too often shy away from asking for help: my goal is always to provide a safe and supportive environment.

  • I became a therapist because:

    My primary drive to become a therapist came from my own experience of therapy and from a need to help people who feel their lives are too challenging.
