Traveling the country and meeting people from all walks of life helped solidify my passion and desire to help others achieve their personal self-care goals and become the best versions of themselves. Caring for others is my small way of helping to make a difference in the lives of others during these challenges times. I believe in treating the whole person, the mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical aspects. When we are centered and have balance in those areas, it is my belief that we thrive and feel more confident that we can cope when faced with any challenge. I specialize in anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, mild cognitive impairment, couple’s communication, anger management and more. I help you identify the challenging areas of your life and identify your strengths while learning new ways of thinking and behaving to achieve you self-identified therapy goals. In therapy, I promote self-autonomy, self-advocacy, and prioritizing your needs. I find that it is rare that my clients do not know what needs to change in their lives but how to begin making those changes and acting on that change consistently is where the challenge often lies. Rest assured that you will have a mentor, coach, teacher, and avid listener every step of the way. If you are willing to commit to your self-care through courage, consistency, and hard work, you can expect to walk away from our time together with a better sense of self, feeling more confident that you can handle daily life challenges, a tool chest of skills, and with an overall sense of well-being.

My work as a psychotherapist is rooted in a profound belief that by recognizing and honoring our complex, messy life stories with honesty and gentleness, we lay the foundation to heal the obstacles preventing us from building fulfilling, meaningful lives. Throughout life, we all create narratives about ourselves to help us survive. These narratives are shaped by myriad factors (individual life experiences, relationships, intergenerational legacies, and experiences of oppression/privilege, belonging/rejection, among others). Over time, our narratives and coping mechanisms fall short. We wonder, what went wrong? What's wrong with me?
