Welcome, and thank you for considering me as someone to work with during your unique process of healing.  I believe the best work in therapy happens with a strong therapeutic relationship. I recognize that not every therapist is the right fit for every person, and vice versa.  I want you to have a little information about me and my work in order to help determine whether our fit might be a good one. 

What first drew me to this line of work was my own process of self discovery. Throughout my journey, which had its many roadblocks, I learned that every person has their own unique story. We all have many experiences and different facets of ourselves that contribute to who we are. Although this means that we each have a special magic to offer the world, it can also lead to us feeling isolated and like we are alone in our suffering. Sometimes we can get stuck in a story that doesn't feel quite right, which prevents us from living out the best version of ourselves. My goal is to provide a safe space for you to process your experiences and uncover the internal script that may be holding you back. I help clients develop new ways of thinking, understanding, and taking action; all with the goal of enhancing their connection to themselves, others, and the world. I feel most connected when I am reading a good book or watching a movie (huge Harry Potter fan), exploring nature, traveling to new places, or spending time with loved ones. If you are looking for a place to discover how to best connect and navigate this sometimes challenging world, I would be honored to work with you. 

I find that I am the best therapist fit to millennials who are feeling lost and looking for direction, individuals and couples who are working through relationship difficulties, and those who want to enhance their self-esteem or sense of self identity. My style is warm, nonjudgmental, and collaborative. I believe that the client is the expert on their life, and that my role is to help you see things in a different light and guide towards change. Full disclosure: I often times utilize metaphors and humor in my approach. It is my way of bringing my sense of self into the process and making psychological concepts more relatable.

If it sounds like we may be a good fit, feel free to reach out to me for a free phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
