    My Values


    Your privacy is of the utmost importance to me. It is also protected by HIPPA. I use a secure, HIPPA-compliant platform for payments, scheduling, texting, and telehealth sessions. If you have any questions about security and privacy, then please do not hesitate to ask.


    Feeling accepted is one of, if not the most important part of effective therapy. I strive to create an environment of acceptance and non-judgment. It is my belief that healing comes from feeling accepted and accepting yourself.


    Self-compassion and other compassion are part of my core beliefs, both for myself and for my clients. Like acceptance, compassion promotes healing and a higher tolerance for life's challenges.
