I am passionate about providing a safe and nurturing space in order to help people learn how to help themselves.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 10 years of experience working with people of all ages, backgrounds, and presenting symptoms in order to provide them with the tools they need to thrive! I know how challenging it can be when life throws us a curveball and we don’t know how to handle it, so I hope to be someone that can provide an empathic and supportive space to help you through it and to the other side.
I have worked with children, adolescents, teenagers, and adults to support them through challenges. Although I don’t specialize in one specific treatment style, I do tend to lean towards a solution-focused approach. I am passionate about using cognitive behavioral therapy techniques to help someone make the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, and I also appreciate the value of the psychodynamic approach.
Life can often knock us down, but we don’t have to stay there. I’m here to help you lift yourself up!
