My Ideal Client

We are all unique; the experiences we've had -whether personal, social, or communal- have shaped our lives and perspectives. I am here to support you through your struggles with compassionate care and honor for your individual experience. Here, you will find a safe space to explore your inner world with positive regard and empathy. Together we will work through personal challenges in your life and relationships, leading to greater confidence and increased insight.

My Background and Approach

Finding the right therapist can seem like a daunting task, especially for those new to the counseling experience. As a therapist with over 10 years experience, I provide a genuine and nurturing environment for beginners to slowly wade into their inner world and, for seasoned therapy "veterans", the safety to dive immediately into their current challenges. I believe genuine human connections are a necessary foundation for positive change. I work from a humanistic, intersectional, and multiculturally competent perspective. Due to my varied experience working with trauma survivors and in general mental health, I am skilled in a wide variety of intervention modalities, and will work with you to find the right approach to address your needs.
