My only goal is to help you make the necessary changes in your life so that you can experience joy, love, abundance, and meaning. I believe that the only way for any of us to heal and grow from the pains of our experiences is with someone who can not only provide an understanding to what we're going through, but help us experience something different. I seek to achieve this outcome with you through a collaborative relationship and instilling empowerment in you.

Finding the right therapist is important. I approach therapy in a warm and relational way, and believe confidentiality and non-judgmental responses are crucial to creating a safe and trusting space. I know it can be hard to open up and start the process, so I make sure my client's feel comfortable to talk about the hard things and share about themselves authentically. If you are going through a transition, want to process past trauma, or anticipate something difficult coming, experiencing depression or anxiety, adolescent struggles, or want personal growth- reach out!

Maybe you are needing support during this unknown and, for many people, scary time. Or, maybe you are needing a bigger change. Congratulations on taking your first step! It can be hard to select "the right therapist" from these giant lists. Sometimes it can be about chemistry and fit, and you just have to try with someone. I believe that you can find clarity and relief, and my own journey has taught me that healing is possible. I work with adults who are dealing with a variety of things such as depression or anxiety, relationship issues, low self esteem or shame, and/or feelings of "stuckness" or being lost.

The changes in the world today can be unbalancing and having a guide to help one find ways to re-balance is important to one's well-being. I Have had life experience in dealing with trauma which guided me to become engaged in the study of psychology. I saw the need for more understanding of the mind and the human experience. Anxiety and depression affect the whole person: psycho-spiritually, physically, mentally, and physiologically. The signs and symptoms of anxiety and depression will manifest at every level. Imagine working together to find your own therapeutic tune to your life song…
