I have worked extensively with children, adolescents, and young adults who have struggled with a wide range of psychological issues including neurodevelopmental, mood, and complex trauma .
I understand that entering therapy is not always an easy task. It takes courage to ask for help. As psychologist Viktor Frankl once said, “In some ways suffering ceases to be suffering at the moment it finds a meaning, such as the meaning of a sacrifice.” I work to help you find meaning. It’s important to me to provide you with a safe, nurturing environment.

So, you’re contemplating seeking out therapy. Congratulations, it takes a lot of courage to recognize that there are things you may want to explore, change, and/or better understand about yourself, the way you see others, and/or your environment. Finding a therapist you feel comfortable with and trust can be difficult. Painful life experiences, past trauma and current situations can lead you to feel stuck, depressed and anxious. I believe that we all have areas of our life that warrant closer examination. As your therapist, I aim to create an empathic judgement-free space where we can work together to achieve your goals.

If you find yourself facing challenges related to mood concerns, body image, eating disorders, trauma , and substance use, my help and support are available to you.
Navigating life's set backs, challenges, and adversities can absolutely take a toll on our wellbeing and ability to function, which is why it is important to know that you do not have to work through these concerns alone. I believe in the power of healing through promoting self-awareness, autonomy and empowerment, and also in people's strength to move towards change. Though suffering is a part of life, something that all humans share, working to manifest helpful and sustainable coping mechanisms, and skills that will work to serve you long term makes a difference in the quality of life a person experiences.

Trauma leaves us feeling broken, damaged, and disconnected from our true selves. You may be fed up with feeling triggered in everyday situations, being disconnected from yourself and your emotions, and find you cannot remember significant chunks of your life. You may not even remember a time you didn’t feel like this. Either way, one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to enjoy a day in which the memories of pain can be remembered without being emotionally and physically triggered by them. You’re ready to wake up each morning with purpose. Most of all, you’re ready to love yourself again.

I support adults facing anxiety, depression, disturbing memories, grief, break-ups, work-related stress, ADHD, and trauma . I focus on helping all adults, specifically marginalized individuals, to navigate through their life story to identify thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that no longer serve them. I assist clients who want to change these negative beliefs into beliefs that are more valid and useful. Examples include: “I should have done something” to “I did the best I could” or “I am not enough” to “I am okay as I am” or “I am not in control” to “I now have choices” or “I cannot trust anyone” to “I can choose whom to trust".

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with additional training for specialties in Shame Resilience (CDWF), Trauma (EMDR trained) and substance use issues for individuals/family (CADC).
It's not easy to make a decision about needing some clarity and support. No one received a playbook on life and often times what used to work to feel good stopped. We can pause, and examine feeling overwhelmed stressed or stagnant.You may be struggling with perfectionism, work, family, relationships or a general sense of malaise or anxiety. Even highly accountable professionals face these issues. Education and success offer no immunity to the everyday issues of life. Most of us look good on the outside.

According to my mother, my first word was "why." Why is the sky blue? Why can't I have a cookie for breakfast? Why are people hurting? This curiosity is integral to my work as a therapist, as I strive to understand my client's worldview and the problems they are facing.
