"My therapeutic approach is warm, casual, authentic, encouraging, and collaborative and I believe in using a strength based approach to assist clients in overcoming obstacles. I'm committed to helping clients identify goals, and provide the tools and skills necessary to reach those goals.

"I recognize how difficult it can be to take the steps toward seeking out a therapist, regardless of the reason that brought you. Life can be challenging in many ways and can be difficult to navigate alone. I take great care in providing a safe environment for my clients to explore their lives and various obstacles in a nonjudgmental way. Building a trusting, therapeutic relationship is what I find most enjoyable about my work as a therapist.
I have been in the field of mental health for nearly 7 years, working with a diverse range of clients of all ages and various backgrounds. I have experience working with individuals and groups around many challenges including depression and anxiety, mood instability, domestic violence, grief, trauma, and various life transitions.
While I tend to come from a relational and strengths-based approach, I recognize that every person is unique, each with their own background and personal set of challenges. As such, I carefully tailor my interventions around the clients given situation. It is my belief that building a trusting and collaborative relationship helps increase treatment success."

"Taking steps to get counseling takes a lot of courage. I believe that everyone has their own unique experience and challenges, and that you don't have to go through it on your own. It is my goal to guide you closer to a balanced and happy life.
I typically work with adults and adolescents ages 11-17 with anxiety, depression, body image, self-esteem, and coping skills. I am passionate about working with people who are marginalized (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Women etc.). You are the expert on you, which is why I will work in a collaborative, encouraging, and supportive effort to help create goals that are tailored to your life while keeping your background and values in mind.
I use Person-Centered Therapy with approaches from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical-Behavior Therapy whenever it best suits you. Whether you desire to make changes in your life or you just want a listening ear, I would love to have the opportunity to support you in your journey.
My first intention is always to provide a safe and accepting environment to give you the space to express your thoughts and feelings. Together we will figure out where to go from there."
"I have unique life experiences that grew my passion for mental health. I am constantly learning and always willing to educate myself if it helps my clients.
My therapeutic approach is creative and holistic (i.e., spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional). I constantly find strengths to move forward in a positive direction. I am emphasizing a cognitive behavioral approach (CBT) to overcome thought patterns, behaviors, and emotions. Some essential tools that assist in developing a peaceful mind are meditation and mindfulness. I run workshops for Restorative Yoga, Meditation, Mindfulness, and Aromatherapy. More to come...
