About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Authentic, compassionate, and insightful. I'm a real human being and partner with clients in therapy to make sure you feel comfortable and seen.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    My approach is integrative, and looks different for each client based on their individual desires and goals. I am trained in a variety of modalities, and see the best outcomes for clients when I lean into certain styles based on their feedback.

  • Together, we will:

    Improve your coping to effectively manage symptoms and life stressors, learn how to express emotions that may be challenging to face, and explore the roots of who you are and what you desire. Our work will help move you towards where you want to go.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Are searching for relief, healing, and understanding. I have 8 years of experience working with young adults, focusing on life transition, identity exploration, depression and anxiety, self-esteem concerns, and more.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Human beings need connection to thrive. I genuinely enjoy connecting with clients and doing what I'm able to support them holistically as people.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist and work with clients from a multicultural perspective.
