About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    compassionate and motivating. Clients find working with me allows them space to be themselves and develop healthy patterns to reach their goals.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I insure that it is tailored to you. I am highly skilled in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Functional Family Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalysis, Trauma-Focused Therapy, Perinatal Mood Disorders, and the Nurtured Heart Approach.

  • Together, we will:

    Identify what is most important to you and develop a plan to reach your individual goals. We may process through past traumas, identify unhelpful thought patterns, or work on rewiring your brain to alter your mindset.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    are often overwhelmed by caring for and about others - like parents, educators, and other therapists. If you're already doing one of these things, or hoping to, I can help you prioritize your health so you can give those you care for your best self!

  • I became a therapist because:

    I want to help people find their own inner peace and enable them to enjoy their lives to the fullest, despite what they've been lived through.

  • Something that stands out about where I offer therapy is:

    you can do it from a safe and comfortable place for you through Telehealth. No need to leave your house or drive somewhere unfamiliar.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I've practiced in a variety of settings - community mental health, residential mental health, and a group private practice. Now I take all of these experiences and tailor my approach based on my client's individual needs and watch them thrive!
