It’s common to feel as though you are alone and disconnected from the world when you have lost someone you love, go through a major life transition, have forgotten what it’s like to be happy, or can’t stop worrying. A strong connection lies at the heart of a positive therapeutic relationship and is critical to helping you move forward. In therapy, we can work together to reduce the distance and help you feel more connected to others and to yourself. You are the expert on your own life, and in our work together, we will collaborate to help you make the changes you want for your life. I create a warm, safe space that gives you room to experience and process intense emotions and address patterns in your life that are not currently working for you. In our sessions together, you will have an opportunity to focus on personal growth and self-improvement in an environment free from judgment. I will help you find your inherent resilience and reconnect with your inner resources while offering additional coping skills that support you in living your authentic life.
I have experience working with individuals from a variety of racial and cultural backgrounds, and I am an LGBT+ affirmative therapist. I approach therapy from a position of cultural humility, meaning that I will approach our work with curiosity, centering your values in our work together. I am interested in getting to know you as a whole person; in our time together, we will focus on solutions that make sense for you in the context of your life story. I am passionate about meeting people where they are, and I am skilled at identifying starting points and goals along our path to helping you live the life you want.
