Getting unstuck from a daily rut often means taking an active role in your mental wellness. If you relate to feeling halted and confused about what to do; if you are searching for a deeper sense of certainty around your actions and decision-making; or if you are longing for greater self-awareness, I am here to help.
How I Work

In collaboration with you, my goal is to provide a safe space to discuss your motivations and priorities and help you reach solutions that work for you. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, or a myriad of other issues, I want to help you put names to your feelings and detangle them. Our work together will center around the discovery and practice of recognizing patterns of maladaptive coping skills.  We will then work to replace these with positive coping skills and ultimately help you learn to soothe yourself and reclaim your present moment.  

I practice from a person-centered approach and use mindfulness as a tool for self-discovery and anxiety relief. I have a strong conviction that the most important aspect of counseling is respect for every individual’s autonomy and unique characteristics. During sessions with me, you will be fully seen and accepted.

Additionally, helping couples connect with the values they hold while providing support and tools for clearer communication, as well as conflict management, is a great joy of mine. As a clinician, I will help you practice skills that contribute to building a solid foundation of trust, connection, and intimacy in your relationship. I incorporate principles of evidence-based practices from the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. My goal is to help you discover and integrate the desires that you and your partner hold (and perhaps struggle to express) so that you may learn to live and love together.


So if you feel motivated to step off the path of suffering and struggle, let’s connect! I’m looking forward to being present with you as you make headway on your journey toward healing and wholeness.
