Therapy Style

I am experienced supporting a range of mental health related issues. I utilize evidenced-based treatments as well as other creative and unique forms of therapy to provide the most individualized care for each client.

As a therapist, I strive to cultivate a warm, supportive presence and environment for my clients to feel safe to discuss challenging topics and have hard conversations. I value building strong partnerships with clients and promote a collaborative and respectful client-therapist relationship. My hope is to be able to help clients gain insight into their struggles as well their strengths to better help clients to navigate their stressors, relationships and life transitions.

I recognize that deciding to start therapy can be scary and then choosing a therapist can be overwhelming, and therefore I appreciate you taking the time to read this over and to consider me as you make this important decision. I would be honored to walk alongside you in this journey.

Everyday is different, but some of the things that I do that supports my mental and emotional well-being include journaling, prayer, moving my body and spending quality time with my friends and family.

I recharge by going on daily wellness walks. Walking for me is extremely therapeutic and calming, I feel my most reflective and recharged at these times.
