It's good to meet you! 

Accepting new clients

The challenges of the modern world can be difficult to weather alone. Whether you are seeking support or want to better understand yourself, I am here to help. I am committed to helping you build the skills to navigate the complexities of life, improve your emotional well-being, and work toward finding meaning and purpose. I am grounded strongly in a patient-centered/dynamic approach that is informed by various cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

By combining these approaches, I strive to help clients gain insight into their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors and develop healthier patterns that enhance their overall well-being and ability to engage in a meaningful life. Reaching out for support can be a courageous first step toward positive change.

If you're interested in learning how I can help, I invite you to schedule a 15min consultation appointment (at no cost to you) to see if I am the right clinician to help you achieve your goals and to give you a sense of what it’s like to work with me. Together, we can work towards a healthier, more fulfilling life.
