Entering therapy is a courageous first step toward recognizing your truest potential. As a therapist, I utilize an eclectic approach based on my client's needs. It is of utmost importance for me to build a therapeutic space that is authentic, safe, and honest, an environment where growth is possible amidst encouragement and support.
As we are all unique humans with unique stories, I do not believe in a one size fits all approach to therapy, and tailor my therapeutic style to my client's needs and goals. I draw upon aspects of Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

All things nature: hiking, beach, even a run around my neighborhood. I also love all things food: cooking, baking, and eating out.
I have worked at a nonprofit called Cancer Support Community which serves individuals and families impacted by cancer. I love CSC because it is truly a community; through the free programs and services we offer, to relationships that are built, to engagement and collaboration with local treating hospitals, it is a lifeline for so many.
My two fur babies are Zucca and Figaro. They have completely opposite personalities: Zucca is calm and loving, and Figaro is high-energy and marches to the beat of his own drum.
