Profile
“I believe that every client has the intrinsic ability to heal and grow—and as the therapist, I am here to help facilitate this process of change.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Therapy has been an integral part of my own development and healing, so I know firsthand the difference a therapist can make in our experiences. After all, no matter who we are, life’s challenges can affect us—from struggles with dating and work, to issues with mental health, low self-esteem, and addiction. We could all use a therapist to help us along the way—and I’m extremely grateful to be able to provide others with a service that has been so impactful for me.
What should someone know about working with you?
I take a multitheoretical and evidence-based approach, integrating cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness- and acceptance-based interventions. I tend to take a holistic view and work to understand which modalities are in the best interest of each client. To me, finding the right therapist is often about the fit, so I offer a free initial phone consultation to start talking about what you’re looking for in therapy and how I may be able to help you. I believe that every client has the intrinsic ability to heal and grow—and as the therapist, I am here to help facilitate this process of change.

How does collaboration with other providers inform your work?
I believe that therapy is just one piece of a bigger puzzle. Humans are complex, and as we continue to learn about the mind-body connection, utilizing an integrated care team becomes even more important. When helpful, this may mean coordinating care with a psychiatrist, medical physician, nutritionist, or spiritual leader. We will work together to figure out how a comprehensive, team approach can help you reach your goals.
What advice would you give to someone who is hesitant to try therapy?
Starting therapy for the first time can be scary—and it’s completely normal to feel nervous. The process of change can be challenging and intimidating, but so many people go to therapy because it works. Through therapy, you will begin to feel better, make healthier choices, reach goals, and live a more fulfilling life. You may be hesitant to begin therapy, but you won’t go through it alone. I will be right there by your side, helping you each step of the way.
Why do you offer virtual therapy?
Everyone deserves access to therapy. But with many of us leading busy lives and working long hours, it can be hard to find the time to travel to therapy appointments. I offer virtual, remote options via video services and bring therapy to you. With virtual therapy, as long as you have a computer or a phone, treatment is right at your fingertips.
