How I can help you
In my therapeutic space, you can expect a collaborative, non-judgmental, and supportive environment, where our work is grounded in evidence-based techniques. We act as scientists, studying your life, committed to understanding the causes of your difficulties and what can lead to positive changes and growth.
I integrate various approaches to create tailored plans for each client. I motivate my clients to participate actively in therapy, making it possible to be brief and solution-focused. I have several tools in my therapeutic “toolbox,” and I will share these with you as the opportunity and need arise.
Why I am specialized in this field
As someone who experienced the benefits of therapy first-hand, I found that I wanted to be someone who helps others thrive. The privilege of doing so fills me with gratitude and guides every part of my clinical practice.
A post-graduation in Family and Couples Therapy has allowed me to better understand and work with people within their relationships, roles, and contexts. It also prepared me to work with all kinds of families.
What I say to people who feel nervous or have concerns about therapy/assessment
If you’re concerned about therapy, know that feeling uncomfortable is normal – even when it’s not our first time. Feel free to bring any topic into our conversations – building a trusting relationship is crucial for successful outcomes.

I would love to connect with you!
