About me

I work with adults of all ages and adolescents. Many of my clients come in to address overwhelming feelings of anxiety, depression, challenges with life transitions, grief, or navigating difficulties with relationships. I also have advanced training in the area of substance use and addiction.

My style is warm, attentive, deeply curious, and direct. When clients first start therapy, the focus will be on developing a relationship that feels safe, collaborative, open, and curious. I approach treatment with a psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive, and internal family systems lens. To that end, I believe that when we better understand how our histories have affected us, we're better equipped to navigate our present lives. I also think that the relationship with the therapist is often the most healing aspect, but mindful breathing, journaling, and dream interpretations can aid and support the therapeutic process. My approach helps clients feel more relaxed and comfortable in their authentic, unique selves and have greater capacity and confidence to tolerate challenges and transitions throughout their lives.
