I have 15 years of experience working with adults, children, and adolescents. I have extensive experience with diverse populations in medical, group and community settings. I work with my clients collaboratively by providing a non-judgmental, compassionate, and supportive setting. I believe in working in a partnership with my clients to help them identify their challenges and utilize their strengths to help them achieve their goals.

My passion is helping people. As a mental health professional I am able to help guide and support my clients during some of their most challenging times. Being a mental health professional I have the opportunity to have a direct impact on the well being of my clients.
I enjoy traveling, live sports, music, reading and art. I am a big foodie so I like trying new restaurants and new recipes. I love spending time with my family and friends.
I make sure to do something active everyday day and I start and end my day with meditation.
I go for a walk and listen to a light podcast or some music. Just getting outside even for 10 minutes each day is enough to recharge me when I'm drained. I also find journaling a great way to help me mentally recharge.
