I believe the first step to a productive therapy experience is creating a supportive and safe environment where people can begin to be curious about themselves and the important changes they would like to make. Through empathy, warmth and insight I have helped many people who feel ambivalent about the therapy process gain confidence, clarity and self-awareness. 

By sharing their stories, my clients not only understand the events that brought them to this moment in time, but how to actively write their own stories. I have experience working with people of all ages with depression, anxiety, trauma histories, adjustment disorders and bereavement.
