L.M.F.T.

Struggle is part of all our journey within the human experience. I offer a non-pathologizing approach in therapy. One of the first steps in our work together would be separating from and accepting our “flaws” (I’d like to call them imperfections) and then help you transform them to find your best/true self. As people relate to their inner experiences from a calm, mindful place, not only are they less overwhelmed, but they can become more accepting of the aspects of themselves with which they’ve been struggling. I have been on this journey myself and with the help of my therapist, I learned it was safe to turn within. Today I get to return the favor to my fellow travelers in life as a Licensed Therapist, by employing an integrative model and utilizing a variety of therapeutic approaches to meet you where you are today and help you in shaping your tomorrow.
