I understand that therapy can be both exciting and terrifying. It takes a great deal of courage to embark on this process. But I believe therapy is a powerful opportunity to know yourself in ways that can lead to lasting change and understanding.
I offer a safe space where you can explore your feelings and thoughts, no matter where you find yourself. If therapy is a new experience for you, we can work together to better manage your relationship challenges, anxieties, life transitions, adjustment to new events, school or work performance, or help you work to understand yourself and find meaning in your experience.
I am caring, perceptive, and free of judgment in sessions. I see people not as problems, but as a complex interaction of their personalities, environments, and experiences. I believe that understanding these facets allows us to integrate them, enabling you to become your happiest, strongest self.

I offer income-based sliding scale and free 20 minute consultations. Please call or email for more information!
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
I believe it is the purpose of therapy to help you become your truest, happiest self. As we travel along in our lives, innumerable experiences (both internal and external) push and pull us into ways of being that can stand in our way of this happiest self. When done right, therapy is a powerful tool that can greatly affect personal change and get us where we want to be.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
The single most critical factor for choosing a therapist is assessing fit. How does it feel to be in session with this person? Do you feel supported? Heard? Understood? If something happens in session that upsets or hurts you, do they seek to repair the relationship? And lastly, is your work together taking you in the direction you want? The therapeutic relationship, while it is truly unique among relationships in its goals and parameters, is still an interaction between two individuals. Any interaction between two individuals can be influenced by multiple and often many intangible aspects. It is therefore, best to shop around and seek out a therapist that you can really feel will meet your needs, both in ways you can explain and ways you cannot.
