Starting therapy can be intimidating. That's OK. I'm here to make the experience as stress-free and accessible as possible.

Indivdual therapy looks different for everyone. We may work on skills related to managing anxiety, navigating relationships, processing past trauma, or practicing mindfulness. My intention is to work with my clients towards meeting their individual goals and living as their authentic selves. I view therapy as a collaborative process. When coming into a session with me, you can expect to be met with warmth and nonjudgemental acceptance. The therapeutic relationship I create with my clients is the most important part of this process and I collaborate with my clients throughout to find the most effective evidence-based treatments and create a personalized experience towards wellness.

Welcome! I believe that one of the most important components to good therapy is a safe, attuned environment in which you can receive strategic support in hearing your own voice. Often, we dismiss our voice or intuition. Therapy can be a place to allow our true emotions to be expressed, enabling us to hear what we may not be listening to in our everyday life. Together, we will uncover the often unspoken and align with your true values.
