Great to meet you!

My clients describe me as:

Honest, easy to talk to, and highly competent in providing goal-directed care that achieves results. Levity and life application are always on deck.

More about me and my practice:

I am trained as a Master Gardener. I love growing my own food and flowers and being outdoors. I enjoy helping others incorporate a grounding/mindfulness practice into their everyday life based on their passions/interests.

A bit about my approach to therapy

Something to know about my approach is:

My approach emphasizes cultivating a freed mindset as essential to a healthy, productive, and enjoyable life. It also emphasizes improving communication, managing expectations, and establishing and maintaining healthy boundaries in interpersonal connections.

Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

Your telehealth session can occur in your own indoor or outdoor private space as long as you are comfortable and not operating a vehicle.

What you can expect from our first session

Together, we will:

Identify thoughts, hurts, and behaviors interfering with fulfillment and peace, implementing strategies for improvement during weekly sessions with life work resources. Let’s begin together today.

I specialize in working with people who:

Have lived experiences with trauma and problems related to upbringing, and those who are generally leaders balancing work, family, self-care, and opportunities for growth and advancement.
