"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." ~ Maya Angelou
I understand that as we experience life we will inevitably encounter obstacles and stressors that challenge us to change. I also believe these moments present opportunities for transformation. I recognize that life transitions and personal experiences can sometimes be overwhelming, however they can also be valuable seasons with the potential to generate "peak and valley" experiences that can alter our life course.
My goal is to provide a comfortable non-judgmental environment to unpack and manage personal challenges and difficult circumstances. My specializations include psychodynamic therapy, relational and family systems therapy, and mindfulness. I am committed to being supportive as clients work through anxiety, grief, depression, trauma and relational transitions.
My mission is to develop authentic therapeutic relationships that are both empathetic and productive during the journey toward resolution and healing. I have over 20 years experience working in social work, community mental health, crisis support and working with diverse populations.
