MS, LCSW, A-CBT
CEO & Clinical Director
It has been a privilege to practice psychotherapy for the past 20 + years. I strongly believe in the resilience of the human spirit and the ability we all have to heal, grow and thrive. I truly value the courage and willingness it takes for our clients to engage in self-exploration.
As a therapist, I prioritize the collaboration of therapist and client, as you are the expert of your own life. Clients have benefitted from working on their negative self-talk in therapy with me, as well as kindness to oneself and decreasing self-criticism.
I believe that embedded in each of us are the tools and knowledge for self-reflection, growth, and healing. I work with clients to develop the insight and skills necessary to manage anxiety, depression, overwhelming emotions, relationship struggles, and to resolve past traumas.
As a therapist, I believe in building a therapeutic relationship that is both safe and relaxing. Therapy is a journey, and it is your journey; you are the expert of your own life; as a therapist, I want to walk beside you, not ahead nor behind. It is a pleasure to be allowed into your world, and I handle that with the utmost care.
As a psychotherapist, I am encouraged by the development each of us is capable of in our own unique way. We all deserve to live our most authentic and healthy lives, and I welcome the opportunity to help others remove the barriers keeping us from doing so.
Every individual should have access to mental health care and be able to explore and grow from past and present traumas. My aim with every client is to provide support and a safe space in which they can better understand themselves and achieve their full potential.
I wholeheartedly believe in the positive impact that therapy can have on an individual’s life trajectory. I think that everyone should have access to a place where they can speak freely about what’s going on inside their head and their heart.
As a queer and gender nonconforming person, I know firsthand how relations of power and oppression are often reproduced in the therapeutic space, and the ways in which prevalent therapeutic models can further marginalize those with non-normative experiences and identities.
