About

Learning how to hold space for yourself and your emotions can be difficult. You deserve a space to slow down, take a breath, and connect with what matters most to you. Therapy can be that space for you. I specialize in working with humans who are experiencing anxiety, depression, burnout, or are in the midst of life changes or have experienced trauma in life. We'll access a place inside you that allows you to become more curious and aware of the unconscious processes currently running your life. I also work a great deal with couples to understand the very same unconscious processes running their relationships.
I’m a real human, here to support you, a real human. Together we will dig deep, explore, and grow through your tender experiences. My goal is to help you help yourself. My holistic, trauma informed practice is an intimate, personal journey towards self-acceptance and self-understanding in the company of a non-judgmental, empathetic guide.
A vibrant emotional wellness comes from a healthy connection between the mind, body + soul. I’m dedicated to partnering with my clients to determine what health & emotional wellness looks like for the I’m here to lead with compassion, and support you in your current season of life by providing you with practical tools, skills, and understanding.
