Therapy With Me:

I believe that clients are the experts in their own lives and I encourage clients to grow and change through a collaborative therapeutic process. I work with diverse populations to achieve goals and healing, while highlighting personal qualities and strengths.
Life is ever-changing. Sometimes it feels chaotic and at other times we just feel stuck. Therapy, to me, has always meant a place of both growth and healing. Whatever the goal may be, it means being willing to sit with “our stuff”. I began my career in the helping profession to empower others, and now I realize truly what an honor it is to help clients work through unique challenges in a safe and confidential space.
I started my professional journey with the same goal I still have today. To help people become the best version of themselves. My approach to therapy is overall client-centered. I believe that clients are the experts in their own lives, and I encourage them to grow and change through a collaborative therapeutic process. Life can be unpredictable and messy. Together, we can work to shift patterns and grow our understanding of their development. I work with diverse populations to achieve goals and healing, while highlighting personal qualities and strengths.
