• About Me

    I believe that, as human beings, we all share similar needs, including a sense of belonging, a sense of purpose, a feeling that we make a difference, having a safe place to express ourselves, and feeling connected. I believe that creativity, self-expression, authenticity, and acknowledging needs and emotions are intrinsic to feeling whole. Therefore, I tend to focus on these issues in helping my clients achieve their goals.

    Extended Biography :

    I have 18 years of experience in the helping profession, and have been practicing as a licensed psychotherapist for the past 8 years. During this time, I have helped children, teenagers, adults, and families resolve conflicts and cope with adverse physical, mental and behavioral health issues. I also have treated homeless military veterans, as well as individuals with intellectual issues, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, domestic violence, codependency, and chemical dependency.  

    Role In Relation to Clients/Patients:

    Therapy is a collaborative process in which the client and I come together to "unpack" and uncover issues, feelings, and experiences to work toward a more authentic self.
