The human experience can be challenging even without the impacts of depression, anxiety, shame, and external pressures. Through all the things you can’t control, your pain doesn't have to turn into long-term suffering if you seek help to heal, practice self discovery, and learn skills to carry you along life’s journey. You already have what it takes to create the life you want! My compassionate, down to earth, and authentic therapeutic approach allows for an environment that offers safety and encourages change and growth.

I have experience working with children, families, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings including in-home therapy, outpatient therapy, and intensive care. I believe in using a comprehensive treatment approach to therapy to meet your needs how they individually need to be met. I actively utilize shame resiliency and mind-body connection.

My practice specializes in helping teens and adults that are experiencing women’s issues, body image difficulty, trauma and attachment disruption, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT Prolonged Exposure for PTSD, and Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for body image.
