We all need a hand sometimes; it’s part of being human. Reaching out to someone new to share your private struggles can be a vulnerable feeling, but I believe that making this time for you may be one of the kindest and gentlest things you’ll ever do for yourself. It just may change your life.

My Approach

I specialize in working with girls & women ages 15 – 75. I know that reaching out for help is hard, but we all need a hand sometimes. I whole-heartedly believe that the connection and relationship between client and therapist is one of the most healing aspects in psychotherapy. Therapy is not one size fits all. I believe women are unique and that our strengths, needs and experiences are unique; my training, and approach are tailored to work with those unique strengths, needs and experiences. I want to help every girl and every woman who doesn’t already know, to know this: You fit here; You belong here; You have worth here; You matter. We matter.
