I work with clients from where they are at, and my chief goal is to be present, offer space, and allow people to simply be, feel, heal and grow. I challenge people where I see that their perspectives are unhelpful, and find new and creative ways to support them in creating lasting change.

I use Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, as well as some aspects of existential therapeutic approaches to deliver support, insight, and psycho-education. Where appropriate, I use arts mediums with clients to further support their process. I work with young adults, adults, and older adults.
