About

Life is filled with challenging transitions, relationships, and experiences. One of my favorite sayings is – nothing in this life worth having comes easy. I use it, myself, as a reminder and motivator when things get hard. Because they do, and that’s okay! It is okay to be stressed, frustrated, sad, angry, excited, and any other emotion you feel. The challenge comes when those emotions lead to unfortunate circumstances. I believe the things we want will test us before conceding and opening the door to success and personal fulfillment. Resilience is a core trait to develop and can provide everyone with the opportunity for happiness.
Compassionate Problem Solving is my motto. Any reason one comes to therapy revolves around some sort of a challenge – big, small, internal, external, past, etc. I focus on building rapport with every client based on authenticity, curiosity, and respect. I take a compassionate approach towards unpacking the issue and working together to identify a strategy.
My goal is to help you obtain the tools to endure hardship and come out victorious on the other side. Using mindfulness, we learn to identify thoughts, emotions, and/or social factors in the moment and explore the rational/emotional processes involved leading to a greater general sense of awareness and self. I look forward to walking with you along this road
