It can feel so scary and isolating to face all the challenges life throws at you, but you don’t have to face them alone. I understand how vulnerable it can feel to reach out for help, so whether this is your first time reaching out for support or your tenth, please take the time to admire your strength. You deserve a space where you can feel validated, seen and heard. Trauma can come in many forms and everyone holds on to it differently. Let's work together to lighten the load you've been carrying for so long and determine what a meaningful life looks like for you.

I will hear your concerns, provide validation, and guide your journey by developing a therapeutic relationship built on the foundation of trust, acceptance, and hope. I support folks across the lifespan: children, teens, parents, adults, perinatal & postpartum, and couples. I hold deep compassion for those faced with infertility. Whatever your struggle is, you don’t have to be alone. Reaching out is the first step. Just start there.

As a trauma focused Art Therapist I use movement, meditation, and art making to enable a different kind of relationship with difficult experiences.
If you're feeling lost, exhausted, overwhelmed, trapped in a limiting pattern, or if you're dealing with an experience that you know, or are coming to realize, has been a trauma for you - there is a way to move forward. I help folks develop the insight and skills to act from choice rather than from habit, defense, or survival. Life can be uniquely challenging when you have experiences that are atypical, however that difference shows up. The right support for your mental health is going to be just as unique. I work with people to find a balance that enables them to be in choice and invest themselves towards their goals. ​ ​

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with more than ten years of experience supporting individuals with their mental wellness. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives and at times become stuck with internal conflict, ways of being, or are in situations that are not conducive to growth. I believe that everyone is on their own spiritual journey and that for some, participating in therapy can encourage deeper understanding and help to unearth meaning in their life. I enjoy helping clients work to identify the source of thoughts, feelings and concerns with the goal of arriving at a place of understanding and acceptance.

Reaching out to talk to someone can be scary. Feeling stuck or uncertain can also be scary. Striving to set and achieve goals can be scary. What does scary look like to you? Finding someone to give you a genuine perspective can be difficult, but I do my best to always be real with anyone I speak with. I hope you start your journey by reaching out to see how I can help you on your path, however that path looks.
