My Approach to Helping

I believe that the relationship with the client and unconditional positive regard are vital for client success. I place a strong emphasis on building a safe and trusting environment with non-judgement and reflection, so that you can unpack, process, root, revive and heal.

I utilize different skills and interventions to help you find your own answers and step further into your life. I believe that my clients are the experts on their own lives because they live them every day. This means that I approach each individual in their own unique ways based on needs, presentation, and things that appear to help them. I want to work with you to find the answers and solutions that work best for you in your life.

Lets help you to root, revive, heal

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I am so passionate about providing therapy practices to my clients. Being a therapist I get to know people on a deep, intimate, and reflective level that can feel so rare in today's world. I love getting to know my clients, the stories they have lived, the ways they have survived, and exploring the heart of who they are. Therapy is such a unique environment and I feel so grateful to share that with you.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

I feel that diagnosis give us detail about someones life experiences and how they have impacted them throughout their life. I want to help you to see yourself outside of your "disorder" and come to understand the ways you are a human too. I believe diagnosis help to guide us in treatment but that we must see the person under the diagnosis and help support them in living their best life possible. I want to support you in finding your true self, unmasking, and creating a healing relationship with your inner child.
