About

Often time we find ourselves seeking happiness when what we truly are seeking is peace. The road to peace often requires working through the emotional heartbreaks and disappointments. It requires self forgiveness and acceptance of things that are often unacceptable trespasses. However when you glimpse inner peace you will realize in this you will find your happiness. Everyone has a story that needs to be told, honored and witnessed and I feel completed honored o hold the space for your work and your healing.
Through the use of various therapeutic practices and tools I will help you find your voice and your way to self actualization and true personal empowerment. Healing the wounds is possible, recovering your voice is possible, and living the life you want is yours to create. Therapy can be hard and it can be sloppy but you will find your true joy and peace.
Finding the right therapist can be hard! I always encourage clients to come in, meet with me and if I am not your fit I will help you find the right therapist for you. I believe your experience with me must be one of truly giving you what is best for YOU-even if that isn't me.
