I work with people whose lives are limited by anxiety and other emotional and situational struggles. Through the integration of many types of therapy, I am able to provide personalized treatment with your unique strengths and needs in mind. My clients say my warmth, compassion, and authenticity help them express their needs and emotions so they can improve what matters in their lives. I provide an accepting and safe place for children, teens, and adults of all gender and sexual orientations and identity.

I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, and I have been providing clinical assessment and therapy services for adults since 2014. People seek my services because of various difficulties in their lives, such as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and other life challenges that often leave them feeling stuck. Using warmth, empathy, compassion, and respect, I build a trusting relationship with clients that helps them use their unique strengths to live more rich and meaningful lives.
