As a psychotherapist, my approach is warm, collaborative, non-judgmental, and direct. In session I offer a conversational and interactive style of therapy. My intention is to build a therapeutic relationship based on a foundation of trust and respect with my clients. Research consistently shows that successful therapy is based on a solid relationship between client and therapist. Working to establish this connection is my first priority as we get to know one another.
I offer a holistic approach by blending many styles of therapy I've studied and practiced over the last 15 years. As I get to know you, I bring in modalities I think would best serve you. I'm also highly intuitive and I often bring this part of myself into our work together. I'm happy to share more about it when we meet.
My intention is for you to feel less alone and held as we tenderly explore what parts of you need healing. My hope is you can live from your most integrated authentic Self. After many years as a therapist, I have experienced and witnessed one truth: there is always hope.
