I believe the most effective therapy is grounded in the relationship between the client and therapist. I utilize a psychodynamic approach through which I hold space for you to explore past and present experiences that may be unknowingly contributing to pain and suffering. My style is warm, collaborative and empathetic. Together we will work to develop coping strategies for life’s many stressors including depression, anxiety, transitions and loss, relationship conflict and more. Sometimes the hardest part about therapy is starting. I welcome the opportunity to connect with you and learn more about how I can help you.

I am currently enrolled in a psychoanalytic training institute where I am enhancing my skills in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
