Life can be tough, and we all need support at times. Whether you’re dealing with
anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, or simply seeking personal growth and
self-awareness, I’m here to help. I understand that starting therapy can feel
overwhelming, and you may have doubts about its effectiveness. But as a therapist, I’m
committed to supporting you every step of the way, helping you to envision a path
forward and develop a plan that meets your unique needs and goals. Together, we’ll
create a safe and supportive space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, and to
develop the skills and strategies you need to thrive.

I take a strength-based and collaborative approach with clients and aim to provide a
nurturing, empathic, warm, and non-judgmental environment where they feel safe to
express themselves. I believe that the therapeutic alliance is one of the strongest
predictors of success in therapy, and I prioritize unconditional acceptance and care in
every session. I use a variety of techniques from different modalities such as CBT,
attachment theory, schema therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches. Please reach
out for a consultation on how we can work together in your journey of self-growth!
