Are you starting to realize that life after grief is hard to cope with because you feel immense pressure from friends, family, and society on how you should grieve? You are not alone because grief is such a complex concept that it usually leaves the person feeling broken. Experiencing grief and trauma can feel like you're on the beach, and all of a sudden, a tidal wave crashes, and you feel terrified, confused, and stuck in place. You know what it feels like to experience these feelings and are ready to make a change.

I hold space for clients as they acknowledge areas of discomfort, mentally and emotionally, and work to make sense, and find purpose and understanding there. I encourage clients to identify how beliefs, past and present experiences, and troubling memories are creating distress in their lives through symptoms of PTSD and trauma, body-image issues and eating disorders, hyper-arousal, distractibility in important functional roles, self-harming and dependent behaviors, anxiety, low or unstable mood, relational and sexual issues, and other unhealthy long-term coping skills. I am a member of IAEDP and am currently receiving supervision.

I enjoy my role, as a counselor, in providing a safe and compassionate place for individuals to feel seen and heard. I enjoy working with individuals that are aware that they need to do something different but aren't sure what the next step is. This could be parents concerned about their child's behavior, needs at school, adolescents and adults going through life transitions, mental health concerns or just needing a safe space to talk and process life. I have experience working with children, adolescents and adults with a variety of mental health needs and also have over 10+ years of experience in the public education system.

What if you woke up tomorrow morning and you realized that you had become all the things you’ve always wanted to be? Maybe you’ve dreamed of the day that depression and anxiety are no longer running your life. Or you’ve always imagined getting unstuck from toxic patterns. What if you could learn new tools that would improve your relationships across the board? That heartbreak you experienced no longer causes you as much pain as it used to.

Life can be difficult in a variety of ways and deciding to seek mental health support can be daunting. I aim to meet you where you are at in life and be present alongside you on your journey. Whatever path you are on, I am here to offer support along the way. I hope to help my clients reach empowerment to make positive changes in their lives.

What a Stressful world we are living in today! Sometimes life can feel overwhelming. In a society that values hard work over mental health, it can be difficult to carve out time for yourself. As challenging as it is, you deserve to find balance and peace in your life. There is a way to find happiness again and to improve relationships with the ones you love. It is my passion to teach self-love, acceptance, relaxation techniques, and empowerment to women, couples, and families. With this in mind, we will uncover root causes of suffering and work towards healing and solutions.

“We are all just walking each other home.” —Ram Dass ••• Throughout our lives, we all ebb and flow through various connections. Maybe you’re feeling out of touch with yourself, and seeking out your own truths. Maybe you’ve been deeply hurt by a past connection with someone and are seeking healing. Maybe the daily pressures have hit a limit that just doesn’t feel manageable anymore. I want you to know from the get-go that you’re not alone in these struggles, and showing up for yourself is the first (not always easy) step toward healing.

Life can be difficult. For children, it can be especially hard to understand and talk about those difficulties. I have been working with children for the last decade to learn to identify, express and coping with their feelings. Through many different methods, children will learn how to tell trust adults about their thoughts, wants and needs. Everyone just wants to be heard and this is especially true for children.
