Healing happens in relationships. As such, a strong therapeutic relationship built on trust provides the foundation for positive change in my sessions. Welcoming to people from all walks of life, I provide a safe, judgment-free space for exploring your challenges as well as your needs, wants, and goals., and I support my clients as they grow to more clearly understand themselves using an insight-driven approach.
Rather than a prescriptive approach, I get to know each client for their own uniqueness and I take an approach that best fits each client’s individual needs. I utilize tenants of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Interpersonal Process approaches to address client concerns.
I strive to provide a comfortable and judgment-free environment for individuals of all ages, races, ethnicities, gender identities, sexual orientations, faith traditions and disability statuses.
