My Approach to Helping

I truly enjoy connecting with people, hearing their stories, and helping others find inner peace and balance in life. My role as your therapist is to help shed light on your strengths and resilience as you discover the empowerment that comes with sharing your story, exploring perspectives, and creating your own path to move forward. The most important relationship you can invest in is the one you have with yourself. As a therapist, I understand that everyone’s experience of this world is different, and it is my intention to remain curious, open, and understanding of your experience of the world and the impact you can have. It is a privilege to share in your process and witness your story.

Using Positive Psychology and Person-Centered Therapy techniques and other evidence-based strategies, I will be your partner in identifying methods to deepen self-understanding and ways in which you can discover what inspires you and how to live your best life now.

I have over 25 years of experience working with children, teens, young adults, caregivers, and groups from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. I have extensive experience working with trauma in various forms and life transitions.

As a member of the LGBTQI community, I care deeply about contributing to a more inclusive society. My strengths are suspending judgment and providing a space for you to explore the possibilities. It is important to pause and reflect before making important life decisions. I look forward to helping you focus on yourself.
