In Eastern Time
I am compassionate, understanding and empathetic. I am also very patient and calm, often soft spoken. I trust the process, and I move with the individual as they navigate change at their own pace. These parts of who I am embody the person-centered approach that I take to therapy.
I believe in the power of human connection and that the foundation for connecting with other people is connecting with ourselves. To be connected with ourselves means we understand our worth and value, which then gives us the power to be ourselves in any situation. I also believe that being connected with ourselves also means to be grounded. I believe that when we approach other people from a place of groundedness and the awareness of our value and worth, we approach them with a willingness to listen and ability to be ourselves. I believe that being genuinely engaged in the therapeutic relationship means having unconditional positive regard for the person. It also means to have respect, an open heart, provide information and instill hope. I believe all of these things are essential for human connection and for effective treatment and opportunity for healing.

I have also spent some time in private practice where I honed in on providing support for young children and their parents.
