  • Compassionate Psychotherapy

    Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
    – Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

    Compassionate Psychotherapy

    What we don’t need in the midst of struggle is shame for being human.
    – Brené Brown


    Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through problems. In psychotherapy, I’ll help you build greater resiliency to overcome challenges. You’ll learn how to skillfully navigate life’s storms, no matter what comes your way. I see the folks I work with as unique and special and I treat everyone with the utmost respect.

    The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
    -Lao Tzu

    My approach is compassionate, collaborative, and non-pathologizing. Labels belong on jars, not on people! I strive to build a safe and trusting relationship where you will feel respected and cared for. I love what I do! Transformative change and growth happens within the context of building a strong therapeutic relationship.

    Let’s work together! I offer a complimentary phone consult so we can chat about why you think therapy would be helpful to you. If I think I’ll be a good fit for your needs, we will schedule your first appointment. Please contact me today!

    I offer both in-office sessions and virtual sessions to best meet your needs.
