I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and that trust and safety are two of the most important aspects in building a strong therapeutic relationship. As a therapist, I am willing and ready to walk with you through the process of facing what you are struggling with and helping you in beginning to heal so that you can regain a sense of peace, understanding, and acceptance. It is together that we will be able to determine what will work best for you in your healing process and begin the journe

More Info About My Practice

Please contact me to find out more information regarding my regular fees. I do offer some reduced fees where my full fee may create financial hardship.

I am not currently accepting insurance, but am happy to provide a bill that can be submitted to your insurance if you have out of network benefits.

My Role as a Therapist

As a therapist, my role is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental space which allows you the opportunity to fully express yourself and begin the healing process. I am there to provide guidance as well as reassurance that you are capable to overcome whatever maybe affecting you at the moment. As a therapist, I will accompany you through the healing process and provide you the support and resources that you need.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

It is important for those seeking a therapist to know that it is OK and within your right to consult with various therapists before selecting one to work with. It is important to work with a therapist you feel comfortable with and believe will be able to help you through your process. If you are "on the fence," please do not hesitate to call and/or email with any questions you may have and even set up a consultation appointment so we can get to know one another.
