About

You are tired of wrestling your: thoughts / relationships / life challenges / anxiety / depression / identity / history / values / actions / grief. Are you tired of conversations turning into arguments? I'm here to sit in the proverbial mud WITH you, offering nonjudgmental, skilled help as you process, learn, grow, and get unstuck. As a result of my history and experience, I am a dedicated therapist who works effectively with individuals, couples, and adolescents, with differing struggles. I provide a personable, relaxed, interactive, and collaborative style using various styles of treatment to meet your individual needs.
Currently solely offering Telehealth (Video Therapy). This allows you maximum convenience: Therapy from the comfort and privacy of your space, on your time, and with no commute! Give me a call for a free 15-30 minute consultation so that we can see if I might be a good fit for you.
On a personal note... I am a daughter, friend, parent, partner, and musician. In my free time I enjoy reading, being outside, making music, hiking, meditation, travel, and quality time playing and exploring with my kids and furry friend (whom the kids swear is a human).
