With over ten years' experience, I treat a range of issues from life transitions to chronic mental health diagnoses, with expertise in emotion dysregulation and habitual/addictive problems, such as substance use, borderline personality disorder, impulsivity, suicidal ideation, depression, and anxiety.
I believe helping you with the issues you bring to therapy starts with empathy and respect. As partners in this process, we will work together to seek a deeper, compassionate understanding of the issues you are seeking help with. We will work to understand the forces- past and present- that contribute to your struggles. Through this lens I will help you mobilize your strengths and values, cope effectively now, and empower you to change lifestyle patterns that maintain emotional pain. No matter how stuck or hopeless you may feel, it is always possible to make changes and move toward a more fulfilling life.

A lived experience in recovery has deepened my empathy, while allowing me to truly appreciate and embrace the many diverse paths from addiction , depression, anxiety, trauma, and other disorders.
Making a decision to start therapy is not only a courageous one, but an empowering one that can be truly life-changing. My approach has always been to form a collaborative partnership with my client while creating a trusting, supportive, non-judgmental, and productive environment in which we work closely together to address any concerns you might have. As someone who has practiced mindfulness and meditation for many years, I also appreciate the interconnectedness between mind and body and embrace an holistic view of healing. I look forward to having the privilege of working with you.

I specialize in working with people struggling with anxiety, depression, and addiction .
I am looking to work with people who are not satisfied with how things are in their life, and ready to take control in order for their lives to improve. In addition to actively listening and problem solving, I coach individuals to activate specific techniques designed to be applied throughout their daily lives. It is in the hands of the individual to apply these skills in order to reach their goals. If an individual is not quite there, we'll work together to figure out what's blocking their potential.

Individuals wanting to explore the deep waters of the soul. Within this ocean, we begin to see what imprints are present and how they are manifesting in our current experiences. Anxiety, stress, and depression are at times very healthy responses to conditions in one's environmental landscape. Your body, your temple stores all of your previous experiences, and when there has been injury in the past we want to investigate any pressure points this injury may have created in the body and in your current day-to-day experiences. Maybe at a crossroads, sitting with loss, navigating grief, burning out, isolated, and needing community.

I work with individuals and couples experiencing stress and anxiety, trauma, depression, addiction , and relationship and intimacy issues.
*Practice Currently Full* Life can feel really overwhelming at times, especially when you are trying to manage the daily grind, while also being present in your personal and professional relationships. When you have a busy and demanding life your personal relationships often take a back burner and it’s hard to deal with problems effectively in the moment. Sometimes it’s easier to numb out with unhealthy habits like over drinking, over or undereating, scrolling social media, or overworking. But, eventually these habits leave you feeling more stressed and disconnected, and problems that once appeared small snowball into larger issues.
