I work to create a safe, nonjudgmental space for children and adults struggling with depression, anxiety, anger, relationship concerns, identity concerns, multiple role conflict, among other difficulties. I utilize a relational, strengths-based approach, and collaborates with clients on their journey to wellness. As they engage in the therapy process, I work together with my clients to identify areas of difficulty, reduce distress, build coping skills, and create meaningful change. I believe in the importance of goodness of fit between client and clinician, and in the power of the therapy relationship to facilitate growth.
