Every person has the ability to impact the world in a unique and powerful way, and we are all born with the need to deeply connect with others. However, struggles with insecurity, burnout, and relational conflicts can isolate us and keep us from realizing our full potential.
By coming to therapy, you engage in a relationship that allows you to feel seen and understood, as well as challenged. It is through relationships that we come to understand ourselves more fully, which allows us to grow. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also specialize in working with couples to help them get unstuck from their cycles of conflict, and to build deeper, safer connection with one another.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe space for you to develop into a healthier version of yourself, which can deepen your sense of connection and better equip you to be an agent of change in this world.
