Profile
“Success in therapy is defined by you.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always wanted to be a therapist; it was a dream of mine after receiving life-changing treatment as a teen. I care deeply about my clients because I know how it feels to sit where you are. I am a certified yoga instructor and value the mind-body connection. While I have worked in many settings, I strive to create a comfortable and effective telehealth experience for my clients.
What should someone know about working with you?
I support you in becoming a happier and healthier you. We focus on the changes that YOU want to make. Success in therapy is defined by you. I have helped many people achieve a greater sense of calm, happiness, and interpersonal effectiveness and I am confident that we can be successful in this endeavor together.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
As a yogi, I value both the individual and the collective. I seek to enhance who you are internally and to foster growth in your relationships and community.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I love the accessibility of telehealth! I seek to create an effective and relaxing experience.
Why choose me?
I have the experience to effectively work with you and, because I have been a client myself, I have sat where you are and feel both compassion and empathy for you. You can expect to laugh, even if you are sad and to cry, even if you have been uncomfortable doing so in the past. I can make even the most reticent feel at ease in therapy and do this by bringing my authentic self to the experience. Most of my clients have felt this difference.
