About

Feeling lost, or maybe you’re struggling with a big life change? No one is too far gone or “broken.” My goal is to help you to finish your past, be present for today, and make progress forward into your tomorrows. I enjoy the experience of walking alongside my clients’ unique experience when they feel that they may be at their lowest point. I strive to provide a positive and encouraging space for my clients to become aware of the issues in their paths, while also helping them to uncover the hidden tools that they have access to. One process I use with clients is Name it-Claim it-Tame it-Change it.
My background includes over 8 years in the public and the private sectors. I currently work with young adults 21 and up. I specialize in Type 1 Diabetes burnout, life transitions, mood issues, grief, personality disorders, and emotional disturbance. I always strive to bring in a mindfulness component to each session.
Becoming genuine, expressing emotions effectively, and practicing the discipline of presence are all part of the therapy process. I draw inspiration from the experience of walking alongside my clients when they feel that they may have nothing left. Transformation occurs when clients are able to uncover the hope that has always been hidden inside themselves.
