We live in a world where we are constantly pulled in what feels like a thousand directions at once. We have families, children, careers, appointments, bills and endless responsibilities. With those responsibilities comes with what often feels like impossible expectations. We live in a world where not only do we have to do it all, but we have to be perfect while we do it. The reality is that we can't do it all, and we certainly can't do it perfectly! Yet, here we are, running ourselves into the ground. Does this sound like you? Does this sound like someone you love? If so, I can help.

I became a therapist because I want to allow people to be heard. We begin to heal and grow when we are truly heard and truly understood. We all have a story, and that story is our past, present and future. And I believe that everyone's story matters. As a therapist, I not only wish for my clients to be heard, but also to be sure they are never silenced.

I have developed a passion and deep understanding for those struggling with anxiety, depression and unresolved trauma across all age groups and all backgrounds. I also work with clients who are coping with the profound loss of a pet. I may not know what it’s like to walk in your shoes, but I will walk beside you. You have a story, and I want to hear it.
