As someone who has struggled with anxiety and gone to therapy, I have been in the position of feeling apprehensive so I create a genuine connection with clients to allow our sessions to be a place where you feel comfortable sharing all your innermost thoughts and emotions.  

As a therapist working from a person-centered framework, I personalize my therapeutic approach to meet you where you are. For couples, I use the Gottman method. I understand that we are all doing the best we can with the tools that we have, so I use CBT to assist you in developing strategies for regulating your emotions, communicating your feelings, and identifying your values. I want you to feel empowered to navigate life’s challenges. I am here to help you break that cycle by choosing healing instead.

I have never met a dessert I didn’t like, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be red velvet cake with buttercream frosting.

Sleeping in, watching the latest Netflix true crime series, followed by a night of playing board games with friends!
