Congratulations on embarking upon the next step in your journey! Each of these steps — every experience of bliss, fear, frustration, or sorrow — have all lead you to this very moment. The challenges and complexities of your day-to-day life may have lead you here. The traumas, losses, and heartaches of the past have, too. And while I would rather that each of us would be spared these experiences — it is my hope that I may have a chance to partner alongside you as you grow and, ideally, heal from each of them.

Above all, I strive to create a space where my clients feel heard, validated, and, hopefully, understood. I am fond of utilizing evidence-based practices (CBT-based therapies) and combining them with the use of Mindfulness, meditation, and visualization to engage clients in a therapeutic process that is both mentally and spiritually transformative.

My goal when working with any client is to meet each individual where they are on their journeys, as to support them in living in greater alignment with their most true selves. I leverage my client’s own knowledge of self as to support them in identifying their own values. I invite you to contact me and to take a chance to invest in your total wellness.
