Many clients may come to help increase their self-esteem, sense of autonomy, to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety or to improve emotion regulation. Others may be struggling to navigate life transitions or unexpected events.

I offer an approach that is catered to clients’ individualized needs and unique backgrounds and strive to foster a non-judgmental and empowering space for you to come in as you truly are.

Whether you seek to develop a stronger sense of self and increase awareness around the triggers and underlying roots of your emotional experience, or whether you are motivated to practice effective tools for managing your symptoms, I strive to meet you where you are at in your journey, and I am committed to helping you work towards your goals in a collaborative manner. I am interested in utilizing various modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy and Mindfulness. I am passionate about using these approaches to help you foster those “a-ha” moments, develop sustainable coping strategies, and to facilitate awareness for the intersecting psychological, behavioral, physical, and environmental factors that impact your mental health.
