My goal as a therapist is to create a warm and safe environment that allows you to deepen your understanding of yourself as you go through life’s challenges and transitions. I use a person-centered approach to develop a course of treatment that is specific to you in order to grow and form healthy relationships, build resilience, and strengthen emotional connection with others. I have a particular interest in the intersection of mental health and physical health diagnoses. I know that health issues can feel defeating and isolating and will work with you to process the grief and loss at the life you were expecting and will work with you to develop concrete strategies to aid you in living your optimal life.
