About Me

My beliefs about therapy... The entire premise of therapy is based around decreasing suffering and improving quality of life, what else could be more rewarding than helping someone to achieve this in their lives? It is an honor to be granted the opportunity to be a part of each and every one of my client’s journeys. Providing a safe, nonjudgmental place for my client to be open and vulnerable is one of my missions as a therapist. Each client is treated with acceptance, empathy, and unconditional positive regard, however this involves being challenged in various emotional ways—for that is where the change is. Although I have an extensive skill set and education, what I prioritize first and foremost is meeting each and every client where they are and treating them as an individual rather than as if they were a textbook case. I believe it is imperative to develop a relationship so that my clients work toward feeling safe and secure enough to express themselves and be truly vulnerable.
