I have experience and knowledge working with individuals who live with; depression, anxiety, bi-polar, personality disorders, schizophrenia, PTSD, substance abuse disorder, suicide and self-harm, LGBTQ+, and grief. I have an education in evidence-based therapies, such as but not limited to: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, motivational interviewing, harm-reduction, and SMART recovery. I acknowledge the uncertainty that comes with starting therapy, you’re not alone. I urge you though to not let fear stop you from getting the help you deserve.
I have a LSW and CADC. I have worked in the community for over 6 years now advocating, educating, learning resources, and being a part of the day to day lives of those who are struggling.
I have a deep understanding for those in need, who often go unheard or forgotten, and struggle to ask for help. I am here to help provide a voice to those individuals, building on skills to live a life instead of surviving it, and allowing individuals the chance to see beyond their mental health.
