Philosophy & Therapeutic Approach


I believe that no matter your background or what you are facing, no one is ever really beyond help. Empathy, compassion, and genuine connection are the touchstones to navigating life’s challenges in my practice. My approach to therapy is simple; it begins with meeting you exactly where you are, as you are. Together we can explore solution-focused, supportive strategies for navigating all of life’s challenges and seek more effective ways of thinking, behaving, and feeling.
