You are seeking therapy because you know it’s time for a change. Your anxiety or trauma have affected how you see and interact with the world, and feeling more at peace seems like a hard-to-reach place.
Oftentimes, we’re our own worst critics. You may be telling yourself that you can’t meet your work or academic goals, address challenging relationship issues, or develop the self-esteem and creativity you need to succeed on your path in life. Your perspective of the world may have been shaped by childhood experiences you had little to no control over.
Maybe you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and have lost the support of your family or loved ones due to issues related to your identity. Or perhaps you no longer know who you are anymore, don’t like who you are, or don’t know how to relate to other people.
You’re here now because you’ve made the decision to become more aware of the negative self-talk that has been affecting daily functioning and ready to learn what to do with it when it comes around.
In confronting your fears, and looking within yourself, you learn to understand how to make sense of the world, how to better cope with strategies and tools that are actually useful and your focus begins to shift to things that you can actually control.
Seeking change is no small feat and takes incredible courage! Luckily, you don’t have to walk this path alone. Creating a safe space where you get to challenge those beliefs, invest in your well-being, and improve your overall life satisfaction is my highest priority.
My approach to therapy is rooted in warmth and collaboration. You are the expert of your own life, and throughout our time together, we will work to discover your truest self. I provide a safe space for you to explore and understand your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a non-judgmental environment. While working from a psychodynamic perspective, I incorporate skills and tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness practices to best fit your unique needs.
I enjoy working with the mind-body connection utilizing guided meditation and relaxation techniques to help you increase insight and openness. My holistic and relational approach to treatment aims to take into consideration and align all aspects of your story.
You are capable of creating a life filled with meaning, purpose, and quality, and I am committed to guiding you with curiosity, compassion, and care.

I look forward to getting to know you and to traveling along with you on your journey!
