I help clients with skills for tolerating pain in times of crisis, responding instead of reacting, increasing self-esteem, improving relationships, and participating fully in each moment.

My Therapy Style

My belief is that therapy should be a collaborative process that allows authenticity and trust to foster insight and growth, exploring how the past informs the present. I truly value the importance of the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. Rapport between clients and myself, I believe, is key for a long-lasting, trusting relationship.

I have experience working with issues related to anxiety and mood disorders, relationship distress, life transitions, family conflict, and more. I help clients learn and practice skills for tolerating pain in times of crisis, responding instead of reacting, increasing self-esteem, improving relationships, and participating fully in each moment.

I cater my sessions to best fit the unique needs of each client, always meeting them with empathy and authenticity. I offer a safe space for exploring and understanding oneself with a non-judgmental, warm stance.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I enjoy helping individuals get "un-stuck." I find that when we have certain stressor/s weighing us down, things can feel scary, hopeless or helpless; we can feel stuck. I like to help people find their strengths and learn tools to move in forward direction, confidently.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy cooking, riding my Peloton, hanging out with family and friends, and traveling.

How do you recharge?

I like to recharge by riding my Peloton, listening to music, and being around loved ones.
