I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (#00010994) with 15 years of experience counseling adolescents, individuals, couples, families and groups. My approach is client-centered, solution-oriented and evidence-based. Together, we will work to discover your strengths and build upon them to address your concerns.

I have a special interest in neuroscience and attachment theory in the context of helping individuals cope and heal from stress and trauma.

I am also passionate about assisting people in developing healthy, authentic relationships, and in carving out their unique life course.
