Do you want things to be different, but struggle with finding the motivation to make changes? Do you have a support system that wants to support you, but they are struggling to understand what you need?

Wherever you are in your journey, together, we can explore what is contributing to feeling stuck and empower you to make the life changes you desire. My hope is to create a therapeutic relationship, in which clients feel seen, heard, and valued. I will provide a safe space where you can reflect on who you are, who you want to be, and how you show up in your relationships with others. 

My therapeutic lens is client-centered,  trauma-informed, and strength-based. I have experience working in school based mental health and community mental health. Meeting clients where they are is a value I hold with high regard. My focuses include trauma, depression, anxiety, life transitions, exploring family systems and grief.

Let’s work towards increasing your confidence in making decisions to move toward the life you want-free of guilt and shame. Schedule an appointment today to begin moving forward in making the changes you would like to see in your life.
