About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    I create a safe, vulnerable space where clients feel accepted, appreciated, and can be real.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    In therapy, you can show up as whoever you want to be and I’ll hold space for all the different parts of you. Whether you’re moving through loss, addressing conflict, or starting a new chapter in your life, you and your needs will always come first.

  • Together, we will:

    Together, we’ll dig into your thoughts, behaviors, and beliefs to address issues impacting relationships and use those insights to build a more fulfilling life. Therapy can be hard, so I love throwing in dashes of lightness and humor along the way.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    I work with clients to bring out their strengths and improve relationships. By creating a safe, positive environment, clients can grow into their best selves, build fulfilling lives, and connect with the people around them.

  • I became a therapist because:

    Mentoring, charity work, and helping people in need was always a big part of my life growing up.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    Resilience Lab — the largest community of clinicians working collaboratively to produce better outcomes and improve mental health.

  • More about me and my practice:

    Every single person on this planet is incredible, resilient, and inherently special. When we come to therapy, many of the issues we bring stem from not believing in our worthiness.
