I am a licensed therapist who believes in an empowering, and empathic therapeutic relationship in which growth can occur. I strive to honor the difficult work that my clients experience while also providing honest, straightforward insight.

My belief is that you don’t exist in the world without being impacted by your most intimate relationships. Your relationships with your partner/ significant other, family, friends, co-workers and neighbors influence your individual experience. My hope is to help you navigate those relationships while also helping you to identify your role in creating your own experience.
