There are many things in life that can make us feel powerless and believe that we are not good enough. However, you don’t have to go through it alone. It shows a great deal of strength to be able to reach out for support in times of need. I believe that through changing our core beliefs, learning effective coping skills, and utilizing the strengths you already have, you can have the life you want. I provide a compassionate and non-judgmental approach to therapy that is tailored to each individual client.

We will work collaboratively to achieve your goals, leaving you to feel empowered. It is incredibly important to me that my clients feel safe, understood, and accepted. This is why I strive to provide a warm and supportive atmosphere where we can explore any difficulties holding you back from being your authentic self.

I am passionately committed to helping you on this journey.
