About me

My style as a therapist is authentic, compassionate, warm, non-judgmental and I appreciate the meaningful role of humor. I believe in the strengths of people and in looking for the positives even when they may be difficult to see. Change is inevitable and often stressful, and can be incredibly valuable to our growth. I will listen to you with an open mind and make sure you feel heard. I will partner with you to collaboratively identify goals important to you. I will share with you skills and life practices that will empower you to confidently face challenges as you evolve into the person you strive to be. I have 20 years of experience working with concerns such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, self-esteem, sexual and gender identity, life changes, grief and loss, relationship and family of origin issues, parenting stress and many more. I see value in integrating various therapeutic approaches to find what fits and works best for you. These may include breathing techniques, guided imagery, movement, emotional self-regulation skills, family of origin exploration and mindfulness/relaxation/stress reduction skills. Regardless of the techniques, I want to honor where you are and focus on a process that offers understanding and positive change.
