Loss can be profoundly overwhelming, these painful feelings can feel relentless and you may wonder if you will ever be happy again. You may question why you are not "moving on" by now or if you ever will. Unanticipated endings, dealing with uncertainties and fear can bring us to crossroads. These intersections present an opportunity for our hearts to grow and for our lives to align with our true north.
Many times what brings us to therapy are life events that we did not sign up for or want to face. We can work at your pace, and figure out together the best way to lighten your pain and start feeling joy again. I believe that when working with individuals, the human connection is the core of what makes therapy meaningful and effective.

My primary work has been in medical settings, including inpatient, outpatient, and community health. I believe that when working with individuals, the human connection is the core of what makes therapy meaningful and effective.

My approach is trauma-informed, strength-based, and inclusive. In my practice, I draw from Mindfulness Practice, Attachment Theory, and Family Systems Theory alongside Motivational Interviewing. My style is warm, intuitive, and collaborative. No matter the modality my approach is always organized around the human connection.

If you are dealing with old patterns, a new health diagnosis, or experiencing any kind of significant loss or relationship issues my practice might be a good fit.

I welcome you to give me a call to discuss further whether I might be a good match for your needs.
