I am a warm, down-to-earth, and depth-oriented therapist, with a gentle yet confrontational style. I believe in the importance of exploring both past and present experiences in order to help you to achieve your goals, discover your authentic self, and create lasting change. My approach is eclectic, primarily psychodynamic and relational, while using techniques from mindfulness, DBT, and CBT.

I have two cats and a turtle! My cats have learned to open doors and like to share my pillow with me. They have firmly decided that what is mine is theirs!
