I provide online counseling for sobriety and mental wellness. I help stressed-out high achievers find sobriety and mental balance by providing a safe space to process and talk about job stress, family issues, alcohol & substance use, as well as any other mental health concerns or stressors you might be experiencing. My goal is to be collaborative and person-centered, I don't have a one-size-fits-all approach to counseling and will utilize various tools such as psychodynamic, CBT, and DBT to name a few.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two kids. We spend a lot of time at the park and with extended family. My son is starting pre-k soon and we are planning on homeschooling.
One thing I do daily that supports my mental and emotional wellbeing is a daily morning routine that consists of spiritual practices and prayer.
Alcoholics Anonymous, the reason I've read this more than once is that for me it's a handbook on life. I learn something new about myself and about how to live a more fulfilled life every time I read through it.
