“We are born in relationship, we are wounded in relationship, and we can be healed in relationship”. This quote by Harville Hendrix, also stated similarly by other psychological and spiritual thought leaders, concisely articulates the core reason I believe therapy can be so transformative. At the root of all the benefits therapy can provide, beneath the necessary treatment planning, assessment tools, psycho-education, and therapeutic strategies, lies the key ingredient to successful therapy- relationship. Which is why I am passionate about building genuine, trustworthy, and purposeful relationships with my clients, and equally passionate about individuals finding the right therapeutic fit, whether it be with me or someone else! 

That being said, I generally work with adults and adolescents, age 13 and up. I delight in working with clients from various backgrounds and cultures, as I have a deep appreciation for the diversity of the human experience, and strive to approach each individual with humility and a sincere desire to understand. My clinical work is largely concentrated on supporting individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, panic, grief, as well as those working through past or current trauma, navigating difficult life transitions, relationship issues, or struggles with identity. 

I consider it my role to provide a safe space for my clients to process, to identify themes in their thoughts/emotions/behaviors, to make meaningful connections, and challenge self-defeating beliefs, all while we work collaboratively towards the specific goals they have for themselves. Ultimately, my hope is to assist my clients in developing a healthier ññrelationship with themselves and the world around them. Working from an integrative approach, I take into account one’s WHOLE self: mind, body, culture, spirituality, gender, etc..and often utilize techniques from CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), Person-Centered, and Solution-Focused frameworks. 

If you have any questions, or if you would simply like to connect and talk through what you are looking for in a therapist/ what you are looking to work through in therapy, I’d be glad to schedule a 15 minute consultation to see if I might be a good fit, or if I can at least offer some support in your search. You can reach me at or at 773-217-8409
