About My Clients
I'm passionate about helping my clients overcome obstacles, find connections, and move forward in healthy ways. Throughout life, we all encounter challenges that make living our lives authentically difficult. Whether these challenges arise from traumatic experiences, internal struggles, or life transitions, finding connection with ourselves and others can help revitalize our passion and excitement for life. I believe you are resilient and can manage many challenges, but you don't need to alone.
My Background and Approach
My passion for helping others emerged at a young age, and I was often regarded as an “old soul” in my family growing up. I have always had a curiosity in others’ stories and how to ease suffering and thrive in life. I graduated from SUNY Geneseo where I studied biology, before switching gears and pursuing a career in therapy. I began working in the mental health field in 2003. I received my training in therapy at the University of Colorado Denver where I received my master’s degree in couple and family therapy. Following graduation, I went on to work for many large organizations both private and not-for-profit in many different roles and capacities before transitioning into private practice. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a trained EMDR therapist. I utilize evidence-based treatments including, but not limited to, ACT, EMDR, PACT, and Gottman Couples Therapy. While my path hasn’t been perfectly linear, it has brought me to the perfect place. I love what I do.
