About

Now accepting new clients! When we face challenges in life, we go to what has worked in the past. We distract ourselves, distance ourselves, or self-medicate with food, relationships, substances and more. At some point, these methods do more harm than good. Let's work together to identify ways of coping and find better options. Starting with our first conversation, I will create a comfortable and safe environment free from judgment that encourages self-discovery. I have experience helping people with relationships, self-esteem, body image, substance use, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and lots of other mental health issues.
I work to understand your unique experience and together we will build a plan that works for you. You already have what it takes to heal yourself, and I will focus on building up your innate strengths. I believe in developing the collaborative relationship between us in order to provide a warm and genuine therapeutic experience.
I use a down-to-earth approach, genuine compassion and humor to make therapy a rewarding process. Reaching out for help is a big step, and it takes courage. You have the power to make changes in your life, and I would be honored to walk beside you on this journey.
