I ensure that my clients receive transformative tools, new perspectives, and unwavering emotional support to overcome difficult or debilitating symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, and various other mental health concerns. One of my top priorities is to build trusting and deeply empathic relationships with clients so that they feel seen, heard, and understood at the deepest level. Throughout my experience as a psychotherapist, I have witnessed clients achieve a more fulfilled life after a gentle exploration of the past and present strongholds in their life.
Therapy with me is client-centered and targets the mind and body. When appropriate, I also address spiritual and existential aspects of the client's life. Some techniques I utilize include internal family systems, cognitive-behavioral therapy and expressive arts.
I welcome you into a private and affirming space. If you find that reaching out takes courage, know that I hold a genuine desire to meet you exactly where you stand in your wellness journey thus far.
Come as you are!
