My Approach to Helping

I work to foster a strong therapeutic relationship with you through compassion, approachability, and empathy. I want you to feel heard and accepted, so that you view our time together as a safe space to process, explore, and promote your healing and growth. You'll find that this is a positive, supportive environment, where I meet you where you're at, and we explore your strengths, set your goals, and develop practical action to help transform your life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

As a psychotherapist, I meet people that I would never have the chance to meet, and I have the opportunity to become a part of an important journey in their life. I love the fact that I can help someone live their best life, and I feel honored when they share their stories with me. I believe that everyone is inherently good, and that all people have the right to be happy. I am thankful that I can be of help towards getting them to that place.
