Great to meet you!

Hi! I am a social worker with 8 years of experience in the field. I have worked with many different individuals and have found incredible joy in working with adults dealing with mental health needs and wishing to improve their lives. I am an experienced trauma therapist and particularly enjoy unpacking the ways our thinking and behavior is shaped by difficult moments, from the past or present.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I provide a warm and non-judgmental space. I work with you to develop a relationship that can best support you in growing as you wish to.

What you can expect from our first session

Many clients have shared increased levels of self-awareness and acceptance, as well as improved ability to understand and be with their emotions.
