About

Your past does not dictate your future. As a survivor of ​abuse, I specialize in enhancing and promoting strength and stability. I believe having a healthy balance is the first step to living your best life. My goal for a therapeutic relationship is to bring self-awareness, empowerment, and support. Together we will identify and acknowledge your feelings and fears to learn to manage your life in a healthy and safe manner. As a person of non-judgment, I STRIVE to provide an inclusive and safe environment where I intend to listen and help develop practical steps to healing.
Many individuals take on the challenge of healing from emotional and sexual abuse​. Anxiety and Depression are common effects. Together we will explore your concerns in a safe, non-judgmental environment in order to reach your goals. I provide an affirming, strength-based, holistic, person-centered approach to treatment.
I believe that no matter what your present looks like, your future is a gift worth unwrapping. With a supportive therapeutic partnership, thriving is within reach. If you feel we can begin your healing journey together, please reach out.
