Even the strongest people need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has hurdles to overcome, and I would love to help you along the way.
I realize that no two people are the same, and I tailor your therapy to meet your specific needs as an individual. I love helping people understand the things that are holding them back with an in-depth approach. After recognizing underlying problems, clients can fully realize their strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things in a different, healthier way.
My practice specializes in helping people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, life transitions, grief & loss, and other life stressors. If you are trying to navigate these areas of life, I am confident that I have the experience to help you rediscover what brings happiness to your life. With therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in the future.
Through therapy, I can get you on track to leading a happier, more fulfilling life by equipping you with the tools you need to manage life’s challenges more efficiently and confidently. It is never too late to start living the life you’ve always wanted. If you’re interested in becoming happier, and more fulfilled, I would love to work with you every step of the way.

I enjoy trying new restaurants, traveling, hiking, watching Netflix, listening to '80s and '90s R&B music, and tending to my plants.
Life is a gift, so I engage in a daily gratitude practice each morning.
I've probably read The Alchemist, by Paul Coelho over 7 times. Each time I read it I learn a new lesson. My favorite quote from the book is "There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure."
I like to recharge by engaging in self-care practices such as massages, working out, interacting with loved ones, getting sufficient sleep, eating healthy, and sometimes doing absolutely nothing.
