My desire has always been to be available, assisting anyone who is hurting. You may be facing a life altering health diagnosis, perhaps an accident, loss of a job, marital problems, an addiction, parenting issues, death of a loved one, caregiving; the list is endless. Perhaps you are wrestling with issues that aren't apparent to anyone else, but they are very real to you. It is easy to feel isolated and alone.

I love working with a variety of individuals. As a Marriage and Family therapist, I especially enjoy working with people in the context of their family. I believe we are influenced and shaped by past events, relationships, and our upbringing. Therapy is a helpful way to explore those areas we are struggling with and to learn a little bit more about ourselves. By doing this, we can become healthier and happier people.

My experience in social work began in hospice and an international placement in India. Upon returning home, I continued to work in hospice, where I encountered end-of-life concerns, depression, anxiety, grief, and loss. I implement a strengths-based, heart-centered, holistic, and spiritual approach that is collaborative and non-judgmental. Guided by a culturally sensitive perspective, I enjoy working with a diverse population. I empower clients to tap into their own creativity to assist in their healing journey.
