My Approach

Are you depressed, anxious, feeling numb, or having difficulty staying focused? Do you feel trapped by your emotions and reactions? As a therapist, I aim to help you connect with all parts of yourself to cultivate growth and wholeness. We will work to identify patterns that are no longer working for you and build new ones to improve your quality of life.
