I have had great success with a wide variety of clientele, especially young girls and women dealing with depression, suicidal thoughts, and other emotional challenges (anxiety, low self-esteem, post traumatic stress disorder, and trauma.
Life is a challenge, regardless of who you are or your place in life. While I believe that all unique individuals are capable of self-love and self-healing, I also know from over 15 years of experience working with people that we all need a little help finding our way from time to time. I am glad that my professional and personal experiences have equipped me to help a wide range of people during difficult times of change or transition, and that I am able to offer my services to those in need.

My practice mainly focuses on assisting individuals who struggle with self-worth, self-harm, suicidal and homicidal ideation as well as those who have trauma related to physical, sexual, and emotional abuse.
My intention as a therapist is to create a safe and warm environment where people can bring their life challenges and trauma to work through without the fear of being judged or harmed. In sessions, I use a person-centered and strength-based lens in order to build the best possible therapeutic relationship with my clients. I approach individuals as whole beings by paying attention to the emotional, physical, spiritual, and societal components that make us all human. I believe my clients know themselves better than anyone else does and it is a joy to come alongside them with compassion, care, and support.

Do you have or suspect you have ADHD? Has social media, yes TikTok/instagram, lead you to suspect you may have ADHD but don't know where to start. I'm passionate about helping you understand ADHD, how it affects YOU and what you can do with it. ADHD is widely misunderstood as a lack of focus or attention. ADHD is more accurately an issue of regulation which includes emotions, impulsivity, money, attention, sensory sensitivity etc. I work with clients on managing their symptoms, and also the anxiety and depression that stem from ADHD.

Life sure can knock you down, sometimes seemingly out of nowhere. You might find yourself in a situation and don’t know where to go from here. If this feels relatable, connecting with a therapist can be incredibly effective with working through life circumstances when it seems hopeless for things to get better. I am a licensed clinical social worker who meets people where they are, while creating a judgement free space of total acceptance and compassion.

I have been working in the mental health field for over 20 years and I have worked in a variety of settings including psychiatric hospitals, community mental health, employee assistance, and now private practice. What I love most about what I do is learning and understanding my clients' individual histories and current life situations. Therapy is not a "one size fits all" treatment plan, everyone's story is unique and their story has to be heard. My clients and I work as a team to figure out what the goals of therapy are and to try to reach those goals as best as we can. My job is to guide, not lead, a client on their journey.
