True healing happens in the presence of another. It is an honor and privilege to witness your healing and provide authentic support through the often challenging yet joyful experience we all face: life.
Since I was a child, I have been curious about the world and our life experiences. I have also wanted to influence positive change in the lives of others. I bring this same curiosity to your life and the precious story you hold. Infusing our therapeutic relationship with trust, care, and objectivity results in my clients feeling more self-assured, calm, and confident in their lives and relationships. I would love to connect with you so we can begin your unique healing journey.
Let us seek your truth together. I have assisted individuals in a variety of settings and have worked with a wide array of age groups including children, adolescents, and adults who faced issues ranging from sexual identity issues, relationship struggles, anxiety, and depression. My multifaceted background has provided a rich understanding of people and the struggles we all face. Most importantly, I relate to my clients authentically because I have been through therapy myself. I have faced hard situations, decisions, and questions about my life – as we all do. I know it might be hard to seek connection during periods of vulnerability, but often it is wise to seek support so you do not have to “go at it” alone. I know therapy works, and I will tailor my approach to your specific needs so we can meet your goals collaboratively.
When I am not helping others as a therapist, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and being a mom.
