ABOUT

I strongly believe that your level of comfort with the therapist you choose is critical to the ultimate success of your therapy process. My goal is to create a warm, safe, and effective environment in which a true partnership is built. I know that every person has the power inside to effect positive change and that psychotherapy is a special collaboration between the client/s and therapist. Working together will build a comfortable yet challenging process that supports you in breaking through the most challenging barriers. Ultimately you are provided with the ability to have a more authentic and meaningful life and relationships.


I feel it’s imperative for each client to receive an individualized and client-oriented treatment plan. I want my clients to know and experience that they do not just “fit into a box". I utilize an integrated approach, which means we will work together to identify the true source of a problem and address it with a variety of approaches. I enjoy establishing close therapeutic relationships that leverage deep trust to help create forward movement. I have been described by my peers as a skilled therapist who is insightful and compassionate - yet not afraid to engage and challenge clients.
