I believe that every person has the ability to heal within themselves and that healing starts by expressing our stories. Sometimes we are looking for a guide to accompany us on this journey. I specialize in working with teens and adults who may be feeling "stuck" in their lives through shame, fear, or anger and have experienced childhood trauma and neglect that continues to impact your relationships, identity, and self-esteem. I hope to support you in finding your voice, changing your body and mind's response to old patterns, and being more proactive and in control of your choices.

Many feel alone and overwhelmed when they are struggling with life challenges or mental health symptoms. Some people try to stuff the “bad feelings” deep down and pretend they are okay, while others shut out family and friends so they don’t hurt them or feel judged by them. It can be hard to have hope when you feel trapped in such a dark place without a light to see the way out.
