What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize an individualized and integrative approach that draws from numerous theoretical frameworks to help clients feel empowered and supported on their journey. I work with clients to gain a holistic understanding of each person's unique situation and acknowledge the influence of the mind-body connection on symptoms and well being.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

My biggest strength as a therapist is my ability to be present and authentic with my clients. I am invested in my client's well being and success and I do my best to help them feel empowered to face their challenges with the skills learned in therapy.

Work History

I have experience providing end of life and grief support to patients and families in the hospital setting at the start of the COVID 19 pandemic. In 2021, I began providing talk therapy for children and families experiencing mental health and substance abuse challenges, as well as providing crisis support to clients of all ages. In 2023, I opened my own practice with the goal of providing support to clients who are experiencing health challenges.
