My Approach to Helping

My clients tell me that our sessions feel like talking to a lifelong friend. I approach most issues with curiosity and find that the more I seek to understand my clients, the more they can identify connections and patterns for themselves. Because I don't shy away from the truth, I tend to be direct with my clients, while keeping their comfort levels in mind.

More Info About My Practice

My passion for social justice drives me to speak up when I see injustice, especially when it affects the most vulnerable members of society. I enjoy reading, including books about politics, therapy, and emotional health- and Harry Potter, of course.

Ages I Work With

  • Teens
  • Adults


  • English

Groups I Work With

    Our lives are made up of relationships. When those relationships are peaceful and balanced, we thrive. When they're strained and dysfunctional, we struggle. That's why I'm passionate about helping individuals, couples, and families build stronger relationships. As their therapist, my goal is to ensure that they build the skills they need to handle life's challenges and obstacles with grace so that they can show up for one another in meaningful ways.
