My values are integrity, authenticity and respect. I strive to create an atmosphere of empathy and positive regard, free from judgment, in which you can feel comfortable sharing your life experiences so that I can help you address the difficulties that you are facing.

In therapy, I work collaboratively with you to reach your wellness goals by incorporating a range of tools and strategies, and selecting approaches that are evidence-based that will fit best with your goals and personality. These strategies will help you gain insight, learn about yourself and others, and heal old wounds.

I would love to support you in developing a better understanding of your life challenges so that you feel better equipped to tackle them and can grow into the best version of yourself.  I invite you to schedule a free 15-minute consultation.
