Bio

I believe people possess the strength and ability to move towards growth. I believe everyone has potential – potential to be their best self, potential for power, strength & resiliency. Sometimes life struggles get in the way of allowing full potential to develop. Each of us experiences pain. There often comes a time when an added layer of support allows us to thrive & shine. This is where I can help. I specialize in women’s mental health (fertility/infertility, child-free by choice, career advancement & difficulties, relational dynamics, imposter syndrome), LGBTQ+ clients, including surgery readiness evals.

I help clients make sense of their lives through connecting with their own emotional experiences. I recognize the influence that injustice, oppression & family upbringing can have. I work to frame the emotional struggles in terms of what they are – powerful survival mechanisms that served you well in the past, yet need to be revisited to further grow.

Many clients enter therapy feeling vulnerable. Through working on empowerment, I help the client learn that they are in charge of their lives outside of therapy. It is my hope that through therapy, I am able to assist my clients in living a more congruent, fulfilling, and meaningful life.
