I strongly believe in the resilience and strength that all individuals are capable of. If life has thrown you a curveball, if you are hurt or grieving, or if you are just feeling stuck, it is easy to lose sight of this. I offer a warm, empathetic, and collaborative approach that lends itself well to helping individuals access their strengths in order to necessitate healing and growth.

I focus on trauma-informed modalities with a strong focus on Gestalt therapy (the focus on the here and now). I utilize elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and various other techniques. I have dedicated nearly ten years to providing services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, but also have experience working with diverse clients facing many types of life stressors and transitions.
