My Ideal Client

People often come to me seeking to better understand their relationships, and to support their emotional health goals. I have also been a resource and helpful when people or families are dealing with a new or chronic illness which is affecting family members and increasing stress. I enjoy supporting individuals, couples, and families in their goals.

My Background and Approach

Radical compassion is a tenet of my practice, as many people struggle with self care, and negative thinking about themselves. My goal is to be strengths-based, thoughtful, and empowering. I utilize motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, IFS therapy, and integrate other aspects of evidenced based supports to provide individualized support for yourself and/or your loved ones.

My Values as a Therapist

I am passionate about not getting in your way. This your journey, focused on your goals. I will continue to check in with you throughout our time together on what's working and what's not. I will always be honest, clear, and open about our time together. I am excited about supporting your goals, and helping you achieve them.
