Hi there! :) I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is vital to the growth and healing process. I began this journey because of my love for people and a desire to provide others with compassionate, authentic connection to heal and grow into the version of themselves that has a full toolbox of skills, self-understanding to start to heal past trauma, and tackle current and future stress life can bring. I believe that everyone is inherently worthy and capable of good and healing, and I build a therapeutic foundation of trust on this belief.
I'm a trauma-informed, licensed associate counselor, experienced in working with a variety of individuals and their concerns and goals, including: anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma/PTSD, those seeking to improve their communication and relationships with others and themselves. I'm passionate about supportive, empathetic, personalized evidenced-based care.
My approach values and welcomes clients regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, body size, ability status, or cultural background. I'm dedicated to fostering an environment where LGBTQ+ individuals, plus-sized individuals, and diverse minority communities feel respected and understood. If any of this connects with you I would love to chat!

My clients can expect a very person-centered, gentle approach. I typically use a collaborative approach, especially in areas of goal-setting and symptom management/reduction. During first sessions we look at the big picture, such symptoms and supports, as well as other important pieces and begin to build trust to start getting to the root of the concerns that bring the person into therapy.
