About Me

Choosing a therapist for yourself or a member of your family can be a difficult decision. The decision to engage in therapy takes true consideration for your wellness and emotional stability.


My approach is from a place of compassion. I hope to create safe spaces for clients to engage in a trusting therapeutic relationship and focus on open communication while promoting self-growth and positive change.


I believe that everything in life is full of purpose and that each experience we go through can be used as a catalyst to grow. I am passionate about individual growth and diversity. It is my hope that each client that I am privileged to work with learns more about their individuality and the purpose they serve in the world around us.


I use evidence based therapeutic approaches in my work. These processes are developed to help clients find new thinking patterns while developing healthy coping skills related to life’s challenges. I am intentional about my mission to listen and understand each clients’ perspectives and beliefs in effort to help them gain clarity about their thoughts and feelings


I have an extensive background working with individuals — children, adolescents, and adults — families, and couples. I have worked in various settings such as outpatient clinics, the public school system, dept. of juvenile justice, domestic violence shelters, and substance abuse treatment facilities to name a few. I’ve worked with victims of trauma and sexual abuse, served as a Clinician for human trafficking survivors, and as the Executive Director for a private adoption agency.


I admire diversity and respect one’s cultural background, gender identity, sexual orientation, and spirituality. I have worked with clients experiencing different challenges including depression, anxiety, grief/loss, Veteran and post-deployment, trauma, stress-management, mood and anxiety changes, relationship and intimacy concerns, self-esteem, confidence, medical conditions including cancer, infertility and life stressors and transitions.


I hope to create a comfortable atmosphere that will allow my clients to tell their story while discovering their purpose. Healing is possible and I look forward to joining you on your journey!
