"**NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** I believe wellness is an ongoing journey that is complicated, scary, exciting, and has no specific road. In fact, I believe wellness is a journey that has unexpected twists and turns, where we encounter moments of growth, regression, or stalling. My hope is to join you in those tougher moments, and give you the space to set down all the heavy baggage you might be carrying and work with you to unpack what is weighing you down. I bring my genuine, quirky self to therapy and believe that as tough as it can be, there is plenty of space reserved for laughs and celebration."

"Anger. Guilt. Resentment. These are the common themes we all struggle with, today. Sadness is all too real when we hurt, and when we do not cope well, or do not know how to cope with our anger, guilt, and/or resentment, we can become depressed. What you will see, is a vicious cycle; a depressed person then becomes angry, and resentful, and can start to feel guilt.
