About

I have a passion for connecting and helping people reach balance, direction, and live a more fulfilling life. I work with teens, adults, couples, and families. I have worked with people from various backgrounds with anxiety, depression, grief, stages of life, trauma, severe mental illness, and marital/relationship, and identity issues. Therapy is highly effective, but requires openness, patience, and dedication! I would love to work with you and help you on this journey called “Life.” I am currently taking new clients in person and through telehealth(zoom). I should mention that I am only taking private pay at the moment.
I currently use a variety of techniques and modalities. I use some CBT, solution focused techniques, mindfulness therapy, Imago, and some law of attraction/ meditative practices.
I come from a place of empathy, understanding, and comfort. I want all of my client’s to feel heard and understood when sharing their vulnerabilities.
