Therapy is a relationship where we collaborate to listen to you, the client and the story that your body is bringing. My therapeutic approach is rooted in relational psychotherapy and attachment theory perspectives. This means I am focused on how your internal world has been shaped by early relational attachments, as well as how they presently impact your relationships and broader life experience.

I operate with professional integrity. In our sessions, expect that I will listen in a nonjudgmental and confidential manner as I make every effort to understand and seek ways to come alongside you as an advocate for your health and well-being.
