“The most significant predictor of successful therapy is feeling like you have a strong therapeutic alliance with your therapist.

I attempt to make sure that every one of my clients feels heard, understood, and positive about the therapeutic journey they are embarking on. I’ve had the pleasure of [...]

I have extensive experience in working with young adults, [...]

“You are the only one responsible for your mental health. The greatest gift you can give yourself is to know and understand your own story.
