I truly believe that where there is self-love, there is absolute contentment. I am an actively engaged interactive clinician and am enthusiastic about working in partnership with my clients. Creating a therapeutic alliance is everything! Using a strength-based, empowering therapeutic style, together, we will set an intention to identify unhealthy thoughts, feelings and behaviors that have adversely impacted your life. Through the utilization of a myriad of cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamic approaches, treatment is customized to improve your quality of life. You will begin to move up and out of that which no longer serves you.
Maybe you’re unclear as to why you continually find yourself in unhealthy relational patterns, why you’ve struggled with launching your dream career or why you’re irritable or sad a lot of the time.

I partner with you reach the next destination of your choosing.
