Personal Statement:I believe in the transformative power of a compassionate and trusting therapeutic relationship. I value patience and kindness as I walk with my clients through their struggles.  There are many paths to healing, and I invite my clients to collaborate with me on identifying their barriers and overcoming them with curiosity and creativity. Each person has innate strengths, and I work with clients on harnessing these tools. Together, we shine a light on old narratives to make way for change and transformation. I integrate the latest, evidence-based modalities on treatment ranging from Dialectical Behavior Therapy to Internal Family Systems. Each step of the way, I check in with clients to adjust treatment and fit their individual needs. Therapy is a courageous process, and I strive to support and empower my clients on their journey to healing.
