Introduction

I enjoy working with individuals who are motivated to heal and make the changes that will improve their lives. We begin by exploring what brings you to psychotherapy. I seek to collaborate with you in creating a holistic (mind, body, spirit) treatment plan to address your needs. I provide an emotionally safe therapeutic relationship by listening deeply and see my role as a collaborator who can join you in compassionately understanding yourself. Together we can tap into my psychological knowledge and experience to help guide your work so that you can learn new ways of coping, responding, and healing yourself.
