Psychology Associate    |    Postdoctoral Fellow

First and foremost I work to understand you and to explore what is essential to who you are and would like to become. As we go deeper, we’ll consider all the cultural, social, and interpersonal factors that contribute to how you see the world and develop your life within it.

Through our work, you’ll experience compassion and recognition of your inherent worth.

I'm inspired by those who are willing to be curious and show up to do the work that therapy requires of them. Sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it’s frustrating, sad, or a bunch of different emotions. In the end, it’s always worth it to understand the process behind the whole picture and gain the opportunity to learn about ourselves.
