My Approach

My goal as a therapist is to create safety. Once we feel safe, we have the capacity to increase insight into old patterns that are holding us back and to use this self-awareness to gain new skills. I guide and support individuals as they heal relationships with themselves and with others. I aspire to foster a space where individuals learn to acknowledge current strengths and celebrate progress. I look forward to working with adults to recognize coping strategies already working for them and creating new strategies in which to thrive.
