About me

I am a trained clinical therapist who brings 14 years of experience working with children, adolescents, couples and families. I have experience working with with adjustment disruption, parenting difficulties, relational concerns, and individual issues. During my time as a therapist, I have collected many rich experiences along the way. I find the therapeutic relationship to be a powerful dyad where change and healing abound.

I approach therapy as a relational experience. My style is engaging, eclectic, conversational and goal-oriented. I value the whole person and believe that we all experience healing within a holistic context. My goal for therapy is to create an environment where those I have the privilege of working with experience a space where they can be their true selves and be met with compassion, understanding and gentle exposure to new and/or existing truths.

The journey of therapy is one that I honor and I look forward to becoming a sojourner with you.
