About

Licensed Therapist in Illinois & Maryland, Certified Nature-Informed Therapist, and Certified Health & Life Coach: Whether we are meeting online, face-to-face, or outdoors for a walk-and-talk session, clients can count on masterful listening and support for cultivating an empowered relationship with themselves, others, and life. I see my role as providing a safe, compassionate space for clients to engage in honest self-reflection and healthy risk-taking toward self-determined goals. My clients reconnect with their inherent worth, wisdom, and ability to transform old patterns into new possibilities.
I specialize in healthy relationships and healing spaces for anxiety, grief and loss. My approach is trauma-informed, nature-informed, strengths-based, and existential. I integrate mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and other complementary methodologies.
At this time I am available for virtual Telehealth sessions for Illinois and Maryland residents. If something you've read about me resonates with you, or if you're not sure, I encourage and welcome you to contact me for a free 15-minute consultation (your choice of phone or zoom).
