Are you seeking growth in your life? I can help you recognize and appreciate the uniqueness of your personality and support you in exploring new ways to develop your personal and relational potential. I specialize in working with adolescents and adults in individual and couples therapy who are dealing with issues such as depression, anxiety, sexual trauma, intimacy issues, and aspects of human sexuality, including LGBTQ+. I work to provide an affirming, emotionally comfortable space to encourage the personal growth through our trusting relationship that you are seeking. I will help you on the path to discovering your whole self.
