My counseling style is open, warm, genuine, and empathetic. I believe in treating everyone with dignity, sensitivity, and compassion, and have worked respectfully with those who are LGBTQ+, as well as struggling with addictions, eating disorders and significant trauma. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, attachment repair and narrative therapies.
It takes courage to reach out for support and therapy however it can be a very empowering and helpful process. I look forward to working together through your journey of healing and self-discovery.
