About

Are you feeling overwhelmed and like you are all alone? Are you worried that you will never experience happiness, joy, or peace again? Maybe you feel like you are just barely surviving, and you do not want to feel like you need to fight to accomplish daily tasks. There is good news, you do not have to face life’s problems alone. We can work together to help you get from surviving in life to thriving. It shows great strength and courage to reach out for help and start on your therapy journey.
I will help you identify and build your strengths and help you learn coping skills that best fit you. I will also help you build healthy boundaries and help you feel safe. It is my passion to help you accomplish your goals and grow in a way that you never thought was possible.
I specialize in helping teens and adults understand the changes that are going on, overcoming the stressors in their life, and healing from past trauma. I create a safe place for individuals to discuss the difficulties they are facing and to feel that their voice matters. Everyone I work with will experience acceptance, compassion and empathy.
