Hello! I have earned my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I enjoy working with teenagers, adults, and older adults on issues related to depression, anxiety, grief and loss, identity, trauma, and life transitions. In session, I like to be interactive and will use traditional talk therapy along with creative methods for communicating. Many people enjoy using arts, crafts, music, and movement in session, so I help foster an environment that helps people feel safe enough to express themselves through these modalities. I am currently accepting new clients and look forward to getting to know you!

I always feel honored when a client or family invites me into their journey through the therapeutic process. Everyone has difficult experiences, some of which can shape them in ways they never wanted. I love walking alongside clients to help restore freedom and parts of themselves that they lost somewhere along the line. It is my privilege to watch clients leave behind things they no longer need—be that an unhealthy view of themselves, behavioral patterns that lead to inauthentic relationships, difficulty in handling emotions, or anything else that hinders clients from stepping into everything they want to become.

My work with you as a client isn’t only about a diagnosis for insurance or a simple presenting problem. Beyond your mental and physical health, I want to know how you show up in the world through your relationships, work life, home environment and spirituality (or absence of). Getting to know you as a whole person helps me be a better therapist. I operate from a wellness framework. I recognize that “wellness” is a buzzword, however I believe wellness therapy works best when you, the client, bring your own unique strengths and interests to the therapeutic relationship. You know yourself best! Let’s look at all areas of your life.
