Do you feel emotionally stuck? Are you a stuffer? You know, someone who hides your true feelings so you appear "okay" on the outside. Then, let me join you on your journey of feeling & healing. Healing is a process, an ongoing discovery & I'm here to help you uncover hope, find harmony & move towards healing. I'll support you in processing your feelings in order to live your most authentic life. Since earning my BA in psychology & my Master of Social Work degree, I have worked passionately with individuals, couples, families, adults, college students, teens & children to learn positive ways to cope with life's many stressors.

As a former hospice social worker & certified grief counselor, I'm familiar with grief & loss; not just the loss of a loved one but the loss of a dream. Whether it be that dream job, dream family, dream partner, or dream life; feeling grief over lost dreams is an inevitable part of the human experience. Let me help you process these feelings in a safe space.

Since life & loss go hand in hand, often resulting in painful feelings, many of us desperately try to mask the pain, avoiding it at all costs. Or coping in negative or perhaps destructive ways. Together, you & I can explore your uncomfortable feelings & discover positive ways to help you cope with them. If you're ready to feel unstuck, therapy can help.
