My clinical practice includes everything from complex mental health diagnoses to people going through a difficult time. I use a person-centered, relational style, and my framework is based on a Psychodynamic approach with an emphasis on family systems. I believe in building relationships in therapy that free people to find balance in their own lives. As a therapist, I focus on you. I want to understand your thoughts and feelings and guide you towards your life goals.

I make certain I have alone time to read or spend time outside to recharge.
I recharge by spending time alone with a good book.
I grew up on a sheep farm in a farming community. I grew up with cats and dogs and attempted to domesticate all wild animals, at my parents dismay.
