I believe that therapy can enrich people's lives and relationships. I love being a therapist and have seen clients overcome challenges and dramatically improve their lives. Life struggles are inevitable and you don't need to wait until there is a "problem" to seek therapy. It takes strength and courage to ask for help and sometimes the hardest thing to do is to take the first step in asking for support. My ideal client is someone who recognizes that they would like to make changes in their life is willing to work with me to begin to improve their quality of life.

I work with teens/adults on issues related to overall life satisfaction, stress/anxiety, relationships, identity, mindfulness, and spirituality. I enjoy working with parents on parenthood/motherhood, life balance, identity, and family/parenting concerns. My specialty is trauma/abuse and I feel honored to accompany clients on their journey to healing from past abuse.

I am relational, collaborative, compassionate, encouraging, and strength-based. I listen to clients, meet them where they are at, and work with them to develop their unique goals. I own a holistic trauma informed group therapy practice where we work with people of all ages, all backgrounds, and from all walks of life.

Professional Connections

I have known Dr. Hardin for several years. She is an excellent clinician. She is very sharp, empathic, and has wonderful understanding of a wide array of issues that clients may be experiencing. I recommend her highly.

Dr. Hardin was an amazing professor and mentor and has always been super compassionate, thoughtful and professional! Her experiences and knowledge of clinical practice were always of tremendous benefit to her students!
