I know acknowledging you need extra support may feel scary. If you’ve found this site, I imagine that you are ready to make a change. Maybe you’ve noticed feeling more angry or irritable or your relationships seem strained. Perhaps you find yourself overthinking or struggling to manage the stress and anxiety in your daily life. Or you know it's finally time to address your negative self talk. I know life can feel incredibly difficult and you may feel isolated in your struggle. I’d be honored to walk alongside you as we collaboratively work to solve the issues that brought you to therapy and help you develop lifelong coping skills. Whatever challenges might bring you to a place of seeking support, I am willing to partner with you as you journey to seek healing and restoration. I believe change happens when people are given the support they need to draw on their own strengths and realize their potential to live fulfilling, meaningful lives. I aim to provide an environment of compassion and support to help you overcome obstacles to move forward and thrive. I use an eclectic approach tailored to the unique needs of each new client to help them meet their personalized goals. I look forward to working with you.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session, my goal is to learn about you and your story. As I learn about the things that have brought you to therapy, it helps me create a unique treatment plan that supports our collaborative work moving forward.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

As a clinician, my hope is to hold space for you to process and reflect. I aim to create a warm and welcoming environment where you can show up as your authentic self. I offer a space free of judgment so that we can do meaningful work toward healing. I specialize in working with women dealing with anxiety & depression, especially as they navigate life transitions including motherhood, challenging workplaces or walking through divorce or separation. My work also includes helping women address childhood trauma, unhealthy relationship patterns and concerns around self-worth. I enjoy working with adoptive & foster parents to help implement trauma-informed practices in their home.
