Why Therapy?

I grew up watching my dad work as a marriage and family therapist. I liked how his work fit with his life and his family schedule. I have always been very intuitive and aware of what is going on around me in terms of inter and intrapersonal dynamics. I loved learning about how people work and relate to one another. The field seemed to pull me onto its path.

Professional Motivation

The healing space that is generated between therapist and client. It is one of the greatest honors of my life to be a witness to the journey. The power of the work that happens in the therapeutic process never ceases to amaze me.


I love being outside. I enjoy walking, weight lifting, working out, writing, playing tennis, reading, traveling, trying new food and drink, engaging any sort of creative space, and going on adventure with loved ones. I also love a good day and night spent at home in comfy clothes and a good show on netflix or some other streaming site.
