“I help people who are struggling to overcome life’s obstacles.”

Reaching out for help when you are feeling overwhelmed, troubled, or just plain stuck in your life takes courage, and I believe that making the decision to seek help during those times indicates true strength of character. Feeling anxious or depressed can prevent us from doing the things we know we need to do to feel better and the current state of the world can make it even more difficult.

As a clinician, I utilize evidence-based techniques to work alongside clients as they navigate difficulty, explore their identity, and work towards thriving in their individual lives and close relationships. Let’s work together. I can teach you the skills you need to control your emotions and steer your life in the direction you want to go. I can provide you with a space where you are free to be your authentic self, where you can express your thoughts and feelings without judgment.

What I love about my job:

Quote:

Never feel guilt for taking a break and putting your mental health first. The world can wait. 

On a Personal Note:

On my days off, I enjoy spending time outside, watching live music, trying new recipes, and staying active in the gym. During quarantine, I decided to use my time to start gardening and now I am the proud owner of a vegetable garden and a house full of plants;)
