“I help those struggling with trauma and day-to-day life struggles to find peace and empowerment over their own lives.”

Do you feel like your difficult past is hindering you from moving forward? Are you constantly questioning yourself and feeling weighed down by anxious thoughts, depressed moods, or haunting memories? If you’re ready to break free from your trauma, I can help. Changing your mindset and your life is a challenging process, but I can navigate it with you.

Maybe you aren’t sure how to process your pain, but you know that you need to do something to take care of your mental health. That’s okay! The first piece of the puzzle is knowing that you want to make a change. Whether you’re new to therapy or trying it again in a new season of life, I want to empower you to commit to your healing.

We’ll work together to set treatment goals that fulfill your true desires for your life. Whether you want to clear your racing mind, control your anger when arguing with your partner, or discover your confidence, we will implement strategies that help you achieve these outcomes. You deserve to love, trust, and be proud of yourself. I want to support you in discovering happiness and light in a judgment-free setting.
