As a teen, I was overwhelmed by trauma and cynicism. It was at times impossible to imagine a better future. But many things worked together to help me survive those years of depression. Kind helpers went out of their way to guide and care for me. Every day I aim to follow their example in my work as a mental health therapist. I believe in the power of creative expression, honest connection, and above all: hope. I would be honored to help turn your struggles into healthy coping strategies.
