"When you make peace with yourself, you make peace with the world" As adults, we are responsible for changing things not because we are to blame for these things, but because we are the only ones who CAN change them. That can feel unfair, and it is. But it can also be empowering- you are the catalyst for personal change, you can always take a turn or step in a different direction, you can always act differently, feel differently, and (with the right tools and assistance) heal. I am here to help you with this noble work. As a mental health professional, I am passionate about helping others feel more whole, hopeful and effective by developing deeper self-knowledge, self-respect, compassion, resilience and coping skills.

I have been in practice since 2009 serving adults, children, teens, couples and families. My focus is on enhancing the well-being of those with Addiction, disabilities, Anxiety and depression as well as trauma. My work is based on mindfulness practice, cognitive behavioral therapies, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as Emotion Focused therapy and changing the “Self Dialogue”.
