About

I meet my clients where they are at, and begin by building on the relationship where we can focus on the parts that seem to be holding one back from living their most authentic life. Every one has their own unique journey, and I believe that in a strong therapeutic relationship, healing, growth, and transformation is possible. Therapy allows for one to gain insight and awareness around one's patterns of behavior. Let us meet together to see if we are a good fit.
A majority of my experience has been working with children and teens, as well as young adults that need support in improving self esteem, making meaning in ones life, and learning how to improve and engage in authentic relationships.
I enjoy analyzing dreams, as well as honoring any creative outlet one uses in their daily life. Some subjects that I have spent time working with are bereavement, death and dying, identity issues, LGBTQ+, family relational problems, and gaining insight and wisdom into daily living.
