I have always wanted to help. I have a passion for working with individuals to find a more effective way of managing difficulties they've encountered in their lives. I am dedicated to dispelling stigma around mental health issues to allow more individuals feel comfortable accessing services to improve their overall life satisfaction.

I have been fortunate enough to gain experience in a variety of treatment settings, which I feel has made my approach well-rounded. My goal is always to help the individuals I work with to lead their own treatment with my professional assistance. I find the most effective therapeutic alliance is based on developing a connection with individuals as the person they are, not their diagnosis.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy serves a different purpose for different people. I have found that in a general sense, no matter what the presentation or identified problem, people carry around a lot of baggage that just weighs us down more and more as time goes on. We carry both the positive and negative with us, which continues to shape our view of the world and how we interact with others. Therapy allows oneself to learn to minimize these negatives and increase the positives to improve life satisfaction. Trust your brain. Trust your body. They will guide you to address whatever it is you need.
