She has experience working with children, adolescents/teens, young adults and the LGBTQ population. She believes that therapy gives us an opportunity to be our authentic self. It creates a safe space to explore our inner truths and speak of them freely in a non-judgmental environment. As humans we value safety and having connections with others and with every connection is an opportunity to for personal growth.

She uses an open, integrative approach to psychotherapy that adapts to the unique needs of each specific client, and will work with you to come up with a plan that is best for you, concentrating on what you want to achieve out of therapy.
