The therapeutic relationship is one that I hold close to my heart, as it is a piece of the puzzle that allowed me to flourish into my true self. I know firsthand what it is like to struggle and feel as though the obstacles ahead appear to be near impossible, whether big or small. While in the moment they may seem insurmountable, truly these experiences become the seeds of transformation and the foundation for stepping into our greatest possibilities in life. I invite you to explore your struggles collaboratively in a non-judgmental and safe space to cultivate greater self-acceptance, empowerment, and strength as you reclaim your inner knowing. I’m looking forward to supporting you as you step into new possibilities in this healing and transformative journey.

I believe that therapy can heal, but I also know that telling a stranger about your deepest pain can be a strange feeling. Perhaps you've been feeling sad, depressed or worried, and hopeless that anything in your life can change. Or maybe you aren't sure what you would even want help with. You know you feel bad, but if someone were to ask you "How can I help?", you aren't sure what you would say. These problems can feel permanent and unsolvable. After all, something feels broken and unfixable, so how could you not feel that it takes all the energy you have just to get up in the morning and go about your day? Depression or anxiety can also feel isolating, as if nobody else could possibly understand. You may have even received advice from people who you feel mean well but can't understand what you're going through. Depression and anxiety are not permanent or unfixable, and therapy can help. Imagine feeling peace of mind, and excited about life and its possibilities. It starts by learning about you and going at your pace. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 16 years experience working with adults and teens, I've seen therapy work, and I feel lucky that I get to be part of that journey for others.

You are read to come to each session with a willingness to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings, eager to unravel the complexities of your mind and heart.

You are not just seeking a quick fix or temporary relief – you're committed to long-term healing and personal transformation. You understand that therapy is a journey, and you're ready to take the first step toward a brighter, more fulfilling future. So if you're ready to embark on this journey together, I invite you to take that first step and reach out today. Together, we can unlock the door to a happier, healthier, and more authentic life.

Do you worry too much about different things? Are you hard on yourself, withdraw from others or struggle to engage in life due to feeling down? Would you like to feel less anxious, less depressed or finally work through unresolved trauma? Establishing a relationship with a well-informed therapist provides for no longer feeling alone in your experiences and safely addressing such underlying issues that may be keeping you stuck in your problems, preventing you from reaching your goals and living your best life. I am trained in a variety of evidenced-based therapy approaches to best meet your needs with a personalized care experience. I use Person-Centered, Cognitive Behavioral, EMDR, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies. This means I am centered in meeting you where you're at and promoting your ability to heal from the past as well as better manage thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I offer expertise in treating anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, anger management, and relationship problems. We improve through feeling understood and more capable of managing life's challenges. I am committed to provide a supportive relationship that enhances your ability to work through obstacles and strive for enjoying a life worth living. I consider my work with those I serve to be a privilege and look forward to supporting you in your journey forward!

I started helping those who are seeking to up-level their experiences and shine as their true and authentic selves in 2019. My journey first started in residential treatment facilities where I held space for those in early recovery from substance use disorders. This population ranged from men's only, women's only and LGBTQ+ Many of these individuals also struggled with anxiety, depression, trauma and eating disorders. I have also had the opportunity to work with adolescents at risk of sex trafficking. This work is extremely rewarding as the clients are at an age where they are most influential and willing. I am a deeply spiritual person and practice in the study of yoga and meditation and participate in somatic healings such as Kundalini Light Intergration (KALI) and breathworks. I am also a level two Reiki practitioner (training to become a master) and a certified personal trainer. When I am not holding space for healing, I enjoy being in the outdoors, surfing, climbing, reading and cooking nutritious and fun to eat meals. I hope to continue the journey of providing a safe space for individuals where healing can occur for years to come. I offer sessions both early in the morning (5am - 7am) and later in the evening (6pm - 9pm) to accommodate those who work nine to five or those who just prefer early morning or evening therapy sessions.
