As a therapist, my goal is to work with you to get through difficult times, learn more about yourself, build on your strengths, and achieve personal growth. It can be scary to tell a stranger your innermost thoughts, but I'm here to hold the space for you to feel those feelings.
I am a firm believer that every person has the capacity to make changes in their life. My goal as a therapist is to foster an environment where my clients decide to make changes for themselves, while working from a humanistic foundation.
