My approach to my patients comes with respect for their journey and recognizing the courage it took to show up to therapy. It takes bravery to face one’s self and I am honored to hear your story and work with you. Therapy provides a safe place to explore your history and examine the impact of your experiences on your thinking, feelings, relationships and behaviors. I provide evidenced based treatment with an integrated approach. I believe that therapy builds empowerment, resiliency, supports vulnerability, and helps build a connection to ones feelings.
