My Approach to Helping
Let's embrace change and embark on a path towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I’m a therapist who wants to help people live a meaningful and value-driven life. Working under the supervision of two licensed psychologists, I specialize in providing psychotherapy for adults working through life transitions, anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma and loss, relationship issues, and psychedelic integration. I also provide ketamine-assisted psychotherapy (KAP).
I take an integrative and tailored approach to therapy, utilizing evidence-based practices, such as Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), with humanistic and relational frameworks by focusing on meaning-making, acceptance, and the holistic view of each individual. I work to help my clients change their relationship with difficult thoughts and emotions, identify their values, and take committed action (after we answer the “why?” I want us to answer the “so what?”).
During therapy we will work on fostering authentic connection so we can dive deeper into your life challenges, celebrate your progress, and facilitate meaningful change. We will work collaboratively to identify clear therapeutic goals to provide a roadmap for personal growth. We will explore alternative perspectives and challenge self limiting patterns to open the door to new possibilities and empower you to make positive changes. We will also explore acceptance and work towards embracing your strengths and vulnerabilities so you can build resilience and develop a more authentic and fulfilling life.
If you are seeking a therapist who can guide you through life's challenges, empower you to align with your values, and help you cultivate a more meaningful and value-driven life, I invite you to reach out. Together, we can embark on a transformative journey towards greater well-being.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I am deeply passionate about being a psychotherapist because it allows me to fulfill my innate desire to help and care for others. Seeing individuals overcome challenges, develop resilience, and experience personal growth brings me immense joy and fulfillment. Being able to make a positive impact in someone's life is incredibly rewarding.
Problem-solving is at the core of psychotherapy, and I thrive on the opportunity to help clients navigate through their difficulties. Collaboratively working with individuals to identify obstacles, explore new perspectives, and develop effective strategies is a gratifying process. Witnessing clients gain insight, find solutions, and make positive changes reinforces my commitment to this profession.
Creating and nurturing relationships is an integral part of being a psychotherapist. Building a therapeutic alliance based on trust, empathy, and authenticity is essential in supporting clients on their journey. Establishing a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals feel heard and understood fosters a strong therapeutic relationship, which is the foundation for growth and healing.
Understanding people and how the world works has always fascinated me. Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to delve into the complexities of the human mind and behavior. Exploring the intricate layers of an individual's experiences, beliefs, and emotions allows me to gain a deeper understanding of their unique perspective. Each person brings a different story, and being able to connect and empathize with their journey is both humbling and enlightening.
Moreover, being a psychotherapist allows me to witness the resilience and strength of the human spirit. It is awe-inspiring to witness individuals overcome adversity, transform their lives, and embrace their true potential. Being a witness to these personal transformations reaffirms my belief in the inherent capacity for growth and change within each individual.
Being a psychotherapist brings together my passion for helping others, my enjoyment of problem-solving, my desire to create and nurture relationships, and my fascination with understanding people and the world. It is an honor and privilege to accompany individuals on their journey of self-discovery, healing, and personal growth, and it fills me with gratitude and satisfaction every day.
