Psychologist

"I can often relate to others’ perspectives, no matter how different from my own. I strive to communicate with my clients directly and assertively, while I also naturally connect with them through empathy and compassion."

HELLO!

I believe therapy that combines emotional processing and skill development will lead to a greater sense of empowerment and life-fulfillment. I strive to provide a space where clients feel seen, heard, and unconditionally accepted. With authenticity, I gently challenge clients, which I hope will encourage an increase in self-awareness and will foster opportunities for clients to respond versus reacting to life and its many obstacles.
