Professional statement

Therapy can be a process that takes a lot of courage as there is often uncertainty about opening up and developing trust with someone you do not know. The goal of therapy is to create a space where you are able to discuss everything in a compassionate and non-judgemental way, leading to more fulfillment in life.


Message to clients

I am a big believer that, when we are able to feel more at peace with ourselves, we find greater joy in life. The journey to feeling peaceful and satisfied is not always smooth–it can feel so personal that we may avoid talking about the “bumps” with our loved ones. Talking with (and thinking together with) someone who is objective & private can be so useful. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with over seven years of clinical experience. I have worked with patients who have felt down, worried about every day stressors, dealt with burnout, struggled with a work/life balance, and wanted to find more satisfaction out of life.

I have also worked with people who wanted to make changes but did not know where to begin. I have worked with those clients to help them identify their individual needs, and I collaborate with them to help find ways to move forward. My goal as a therapist is to create a compassionate and non-judgmental space where you are able to express yourself.

Together, we can help you further develop self-compassion. This will lead you to feel more present at work, with family and friends, and things you feel passionate about in life. I am also skilled in working with people who have struggled with substances in the past and are looking to continue in recovery, as well as family/friends of those using substances.
