About Me

Therapy can be both scary and liberating. Often, we find ourselves looking for assistance when life hurts, feels uncertain, or we don’t know where else to turn. I do not take lightly the courage it takes to seek therapy and attend sessions, it can be a vulnerable encounter, and I am proud of you for looking into this option. I believe everyone deserves to be heard, seen and validated. My goal is to create an environment where you can feel comfortable to explore your concerns, past and areas you are seeking to improve upon. I strive to work with you to resolve concerns and feel at peace. What you can expect of working with me is honesty, leaning into tough conversations, support, and when appropriate, humor.
