I believe that transformation and change is possible despite the challenging circumstances. I'm a kind, committed and experienced psychotherapist who is passionate about helping adolescents and adults improve their quality of life. My experience includes working with individuals and couples affected by depression, anxiety, stress, relationship difficulties and compulsive sexual behavior .

I believe that people can transform their thoughts, feelings, relationships and lives when provided with the right support. Newfound strength, resilience and growth often emerge from places where deep hurt and pain once existed. My therapeutic style incorporates compassion, kindness, hope, humor and spirituality. I strive to create a welcoming and safe environment which may reduce fear and make sharing easier. Seeking help is a sign of strength and courage that I acknowledge and celebrate. Therapy involves honesty, self-discovery, empowerment and accountability. It can help shift your perspective and supply relief and freedom.

As a therapist I use an integrated strengths-based approach utilizing therapeutic models such as ACT, DBT, CBT, IFS and others. I enjoy working with individuals on mental health and interpersonal matters but can also safely discuss issues of systemic racism, discrimination, implicit bias, diversity, equity and inclusion matters. I’m dedicated to helping people accomplish their goals and obtain holistic wellness.
