My Personal Beliefs and Interests
For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a therapist. I appreciate the vulnerability it takes to ask for help, and I feel honored to walk with others as they grow healthier and more satisfied with their lives. I believe that change is possible with open-mindedness, honesty and willingness. Therapy is not a “one size fits all” process. I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment where we develop a relationship built on respect and trust. In that space, we work together to create an individualized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs. I help you recognize roadblocks that cause you to feel frustrated and unsure of yourself. Together, we shed light on new pathways that lead to greater confidence, freedom from doubt and worry, and greater joy. I work via HIPAA compliant tele-health only.
