As your therapist, my approach is grounded in warmth, empathy, and a non-judgmental stance. My goal is to help you navigate through your experiences, identifying and moving beyond patterns that may no longer benefit you. Together, we’ll explore new ways of connecting with your values and the life you aspire to lead.

I am trained in EMDR, a powerful tool for working through challenging memories, and I’m here to support you every step of the way. Seeking assistance and committing to this journey can be daunting, but remember to approach it with gentleness towards yourself. You’re not in this alone. We’ll collaborate to discover the path that resonates deeply with you, aiming for a life filled with joy and fulfillment.

I stand as a fervent ally to the LGBTQ+ community and embrace working with diverse lifestyles and relationship dynamics.

I have additional training and experience in:
Trauma Processing/EMDR
Couples Therapy
First Responders
Academic Stress in young adults
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Suicidal Ideation and Self-Harm

If it feels right to you, I look forward to meeting and getting to know how I can support you. Please note that I will likely move to telehealth only in the next 6-18 months.
