Bio:

There are many ways in which life is, can be, or has been hard. Entering individual therapy is entering a relationship; one that has the potential to support and empower the growth and change necessary for you to live a healthier, more satisfying life. Whether it’s establishing connections between your past and present; creating newer, healthier ways of living, loving, and coping; or developing an increased understanding of the fabric of your life, therapy can guide you on your journey toward an examined life. I regard each one of my patients and their individual life stories with empathy, curiosity, and a well-trained and attuned ear for relational, emotional and behavioral themes that may or may not be creating distress. I am invested in helping my patients discover and personalize useful therapeutic tools including mindfulness techniques (learning to notice one’s thoughts and feelings without judgment; body resources (such as breathing and grounding); and most importantly, self-awareness and insight that can sustain them between sessions and long after therapy has ended.
