My experience is with individuals who are struggling with depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, adoption related issues, substance abuse, family conflict, child welfare, and managing life events.
Making the decision to start therapy can be a very vulnerable time, whether it be for you or your child. In therapy you will have a safe and judgement free space to meet your goals. I enjoy working with children and adults to recognize strengths and build on them to assist you in meeting your well being needs. Whether you are struggling to overcome an incident or event, wanting to make specific changes in your life, or looking to improve your overall quality of life and feel better about yourself, we will work together.

I always feel honored when a client or family invites me into their journey through the therapeutic process. Everyone has difficult experiences, some of which can shape them in ways they never wanted. I love walking alongside clients to help restore freedom and parts of themselves that they lost somewhere along the line. It is my privilege to watch clients leave behind things they no longer need—be that an unhealthy view of themselves, behavioral patterns that lead to inauthentic relationships, difficulty in handling emotions, or anything else that hinders clients from stepping into everything they want to become.
