I have experience in working in clinics, community-based outpatients, and detention settings. I have a passion for working with young adults in efforts of assisting them in re-writing their stories and utilizing necessary coping skills to manage and evolve during difficult times. I assist my clients in separating themselves from their problems, giving their stories meaning, helping shape their identity, and discovering their life purpose.
My specialty areas include depression, anxiety, child abuse, neglect, trauma, adjustment issues, divorce and separation, stress management, personal growth, and coping skills.
I approach therapy with a client-centered perspective in which I focus on genuineness and empathy.

I enjoy anything fitness! I love working out and talking my dog out for long walks. I enjoy cooking for my husband and visiting wineries.
One thing I do to support my mental and emotional well-being is moving my body! Whether it is hitting the gym or going for a short walk outside, it is important to MOVE.
Making sure I get enough sleep and drinking lots of water.
Yes! I have a mini goldendoodle and her name is Bailey. She is my world. I love taking her out when it is windy and seeing all her hair flow in the wind. It is the cutest thing ever!
