At our therapy practice, we value diversity and believe that it is essential in creating a safe and inclusive environment for all of our clients. We recognize that every individual has their own unique experiences, backgrounds, and identities, and we strive to create a space where all clients feel seen, heard, and valued. We are committed to actively promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work, and to providing culturally responsive care that is tailored to the needs of each individual client.

Let go of who you are supposed to be and embrace who you are.
I would love to schedule a complimentary 15-minute consultation call with YOU!
I am here to help you live your life to the fullest, whether that means working through moments of change, celebration, or challenge. Whether you crave a healthier outlook, a more loving relationship, a calmer home environment, a supportive social network, a fulfilling career, a definitive sense of self, or simply, a better daily routine. I can help navigate to that place of better. Our various life experiences such as hardship, trauma, inequity, stress, illness, neglect, invalidation, and lack of support can disconnect us from the truth of all our capabilities. Therapy can provide and offer us the healing, insight, and empowerment that is needed in order to create the change you deserve and desire.
I incorporate cognitive techniques such as challenging negative thought patterns and helping with problem solving and coping skills. I believe working through difficult emotions and conflicts as they arise and developing a trusting, positive therapeutic relationship is essential to healing and growth in a person and couple.
I am LGBTQ-friendly and work with adults and couples. I provide treatment and facilitate change in those who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stressful life transitions and changes as well as relationship issues of all kinds.
Do you believe I am the best person to guide and support you on your journey of personal transformation? Don't wait! Take that first step toward living your best life today!
One particularly difficult area to discuss for individuals and couples alike is the topic of Sex. For this reason, I specialized in sex therapy. I want you to feel you can have a place to put your thoughts around this area of conversation with compassion, understanding, and direction. We can give this topic the attention it deserves. I welcome it. Physical safety and intimacy with ourselves and others is essential to making our lives more fulfilling. My goal as a sex therapist is to help you move past the emotional and physical challenges that stand in the way of you having an enjoyable sex life as you define that.
I am trained and center my practice in cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and sex therapy. These modalities recognize that everyone has a mix of strengths and weaknesses, however, it is a person's strengths that help them move through the barriers that keep them stuck.
I believe therapy is a process of healing and transformation. You do not have to go through the process alone. I have a passion for helping clients come to understand and live their lives to the absolute fullest. It would be an honor to walk alongside you in the journey of bettering yourself.
My therapy approach stems from a belief that everyone deserves a safe, productive, and non-judgmental space to begin the healing process which ignites the growth process for what is to come for you and your future.
I will help you identify and change negative behavioral patterns, including patterns in communication, relationships, and thought processes. Clients are able to achieve substantial gains in life as the patterns are identified, understood, and worked through in order to make big and small differences that make life more enjoyable and fulfilling.
In my free time, I usually can be found somewhere in nature taking long walks or hiking. My self care routine includes Yoga and Pilates. For fun, I very much enjoy hosting dinner parties with friends and family with menu item favs including homemade pasta recipes and banana bread for dessert! Travel goals in the next three years include Italy and Hawaii. A secret I will never tell - the exact # of times I have read the read the Harry Potter series.
