It requires a great deal of courage to step into an unknown space, with an unknown person, and share your story.

I vividly remember a first session with a client who had never come to therapy before. They sat down cautiously and began by saying, “This is weird. This is weird. This is weird.” 

Therapy can feel weird; I get it. In a culture that defines success by productivity levels, numbers of “likes” and zeros in your paycheck, setting aside the time and space for your personal wellbeing can feel like quite an investment. It is. The financial, mental, and emotional commitment it requires to show up every week can be daunting and fear-inducing. My sincere hope, however, is that together we will be able to take the journey towards greater understanding and healing in a transformative way.   

While I do not work exclusively from one modality, much of my practice is influenced by systems theory, an attachment perspective and a psychodynamic approach. I also strive to consistently stay up to date with the latest research in neuroscience and relational theories of psychotherapy. Our earliest relationships have an incredibly strong impact on how we develop, and exploring them provides great insight into the unique things that have shaped you, the implications of particular relational patterns, and the effect unresolved conflict may be having on your day to day interactions. 





I am not certain how you found your way here, but whether you are seeking individual help, want to work on familial or relational struggles, or have an adolescent in need of an outside listening ear, I would love to be a resource. 




I would love to hear from you.
