If you are experiencing any difficulties in life, one of the bravest things that you can do is seek help. I am here to help you accomplish your goals to live a happy, healthy, and successful life! Caring for others was introduced early in my life as I witnessed my family support foster youth in their homes, provide mental health services, and develop a nonprofit organization to support underserved populations - in honor of my late grandmother. I assist individuals in need of healing from depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief, and other mood disorders.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* I believe people continue to grow and foster their self-concept over time. Sudden life changes, chronic stress, and ongoing personal difficulties are challenging and affect how we adjust to life transitions. I see therapy as a process aiming to empower individuals to embrace their true self, foster self-awareness and personal growth. I aim to create a trusting environment for individuals and couples to explore recurrent patterns in relationships and cope with distressing emotions. I work with trauma survivors, first responders, law enforcement, and military families. I also specialize in couples counseling.

As humans, we develop strategies to help keep ourselves physically, mentally, & emotionally safe in an unpredictable world. These strategies may look like: isolating, self judgement, keeping yourself busy at all times, struggling to pull together enough energy to get through the day, putting others’ needs before your own, or feeling a lack of purpose/hope for the future. Sound familiar? At one point those strategies served a vital purpose, but may feel confining now. Sometimes we outgrow the techniques we learned way back when, or our circumstances change, & if we keep using them, they can actually become harmful.
