Profile
“In my social work program, I discovered that the very core of my interest was relational, as I witnessed how much compassion and understanding allowed people to become who they were always meant to be.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always been fascinated by people's stories and how one makes meaning out of this incredibly complex life. The way in which I understood myself, the way others saw me, and the dynamic way these different positions interacted with each other is something I have always been curious about and have sought space to understand. Social justice and psychology felt like a natural fit. In my social work program, I discovered that the very core of my interest was relational, as I witnessed how much compassion and understanding allowed people to become who they were always meant to be. I now practice primarily through a relational psychodynamic lens, meaning I believe the therapeutic relationship is the primary source from which healing and change occur.
What should someone know about working with you?
My therapeutic style is warm, supportive, and strongly influenced by mindfulness practice. I also draw from internal family systems, narrative therapy, and body/somatic perspectives in our work together. I believe that developing insight into your own inner life allows for deeper recovery and meaning-making. Seeking therapy can be an uncertain and vulnerable experience and I welcome all of your feelings in this process of living your life with greater ease.

How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe that we are essentially beings seeking connection — with ourselves, others, and our environment. I have witnessed how harmful experiences of disconnection impact our sense of "self" and how we understand others. I am deeply committed to the work of social justice and antiracism, and I consciously work to include this in all aspects of my life. I believe that we are complex beings with many parts and that harmony with all parts of ourselves is possible.
