About

Do you ever feel stuck inside your head with no way out and the crippling anxiety intensifies?

Sometimes talking to others can seem impossible, which can leave you feeling isolated and alone. Together, we can work towards uncovering the deeper meaning behind your symptoms and customize a treatment plan to help ease and work through your distress.

Often, we’re so consumed by our intrusive thoughts that we forget to enjoy what’s happening right in front of us. My own therapeutic journey taught me to become more in tune with myself. I learned to appreciate the little things that we normally take for granted and to slow down.

My approach stems from Gestalt Therapy, where the focus is shifted onto the here and now. Incorporating techniques such as the “Empty Chair” will help you live in the present moment and become more aware of your negative thought pattern while understanding its triggers. With my support, you will learn how to effectively cope with your symptoms and manage its occurrence altogether.

We will work hand in hand, so you never have to feel alone ever again.
