As a therapist, my style is compassionate, warm, collaborative, and empowering. I believe in the inherent resilience of the human spirit to heal, learn, and grow. I provide a client-centered, trauma-informed approach to cultivate a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
Together, we will work to identify unhelpful patterns and develop new strategies to increase awareness of how to respond to life’s challenges. My role as a therapist is to help you uncover parts of yourself in order to foster a sense of understanding, growth, and fulfillment.
My approach to therapy is largely humanistic, Strengths-Based, and interactive to best meet your individual needs and goals. I primarily work with individuals to navigate a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and managing life’s transitions.

I wanted to become a social worker because I have always loved fostering connections with others. It is a privilege to provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for people to feel seen and heard. I’ve also always been drawn to a career where I can have a positive impact on people’s lives. I feel a deep sense of fulfillment and purpose in guiding individuals toward self-discovery, resilience, and improved mental well-being

Safe Horizon. They do incredible work to support survivors of domestic violence and use trauma-informed practices to support their clients attain stable independence. In 2017, I ran the Philadelphia marathon to raise money for the organization.
I enjoy doing yoga, going for long runs, and taking my dog to the park. I also enjoy traveling and trying new restaurants with friends.
