Education + Expertise

Hello! Thank you for stopping by to read about me.
It’s nice to virtually meet you!

A little bit about me:

I believe in an integrative, collaborative approach: I look at an individual as a whole person, with many bits and pieces that make up who you are. I explore both psychodynamic and systemic therapies. Recognizing difficulties in your life is one of the first steps towards growth and change, but understanding why the difficulty is occurring in the first place brings your awareness and level of control to a whole other level.

I recognize that we are all different people, living different lives with different challenges and emotions to explore. I acknowledge and appreciate that life can be hard, wonderful, challenging, as well as blissful, frustrating, and every emotion in between.

I want to learn about who you are, who you want to be, and what your world is like. Nobody knows you better than you, and I aim to cultivate a space between us where you feel supported, empowered, and safe to dive into conversations about anything and everything. I believe that every person is worthy of taking up space and time, and is unlimitedly deserving of love, care, support, and attention.

It would be a pleasure to work with you and see you grow.
