Allow me to provide a safe, non-judgmental, and conducive space for you to explore, grow and work on becoming the best version of yourself.

My Therapy Style

I believe that we have within us the power to create the life we desire. We possess inner strengths and skills that can help us overcome challenges and live a fulfilled life. However, accessing this power can be an overwhelming task that may require support. Allow me to be an unbiased, compassionate and caring partner in your journey.

I help individuals explore their thoughts and emotions, reframe distorted beliefs, replace unhealthy patterns and unblock past traumas. I use the elements of Brainspotting, Parts Work, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Psychodynamic therapy and other interventions to help you achieve your goals. I have over 10 years of experience working with college students, young professionals, justice involved teens/adults, current/former foster youth and other adults. I help clients unlock their true potential and triumph over issues of low self-esteem, impostor syndrome, depression, anxiety, trauma, difficult life transitions, relationship issues and more.

I believe in the collaborative relationship between client and therapist. Developing a strong therapeutic relationship is important to me and it's something that I take pride in doing well. Allow me to provide a safe, non-judgmental and conducive space for you to explore, grow and work on becoming the best version of yourself. Ready? Let the healing begin!

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I actually grew up wanting to be an architect, but because the architecture program at my school was impacted, I earned my degree in Urban and Regional Planning. When I finally did an internship my last year of school, I figured out that this field was not fulfilling enough for me and it truly wasn't my calling.

Luckily, I was very involved on campus and did a lot of volunteer work with youth. I loved this work! I was encouraging, supporting and inspiring the next generation of scholars and leaders, and this truly gave me purpose and meaning in life. A mentor in college helped me sift through my thoughts and ultimately talked to me about social work. I was intrigued, took two years off to find my purpose and after much prayer, searching and work experiences, I arrived at my path of becoming a social worker. I enjoy helping others and this calling has been a transformational experience not only for my clients, but myself as well.

What are your interests outside of work?

In my free time, I enjoy doing anything near or in the ocean/water, playing golf, engaging in personal development, spending time with family, exploring new places around town and I recently took up disc golf!

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Drink a gallon of water a day, spend time in silence, practice alternate nostril breathing, practice mindfulness and listen to inspiring music, podcast, and videos.

How do you recharge?

Prayer/meditating, a trip to the ocean and practicing self-love/compassion.
