I am invested in supporting clients to reach a higher level of well-being and fulfillment in their lives. I provide a safe and supportive space with genuineness, authenticity, and kindness. I am devoted to tailoring the treatment to individual needs.
Therapy sessions can allow us the opportunity to gain a clearer idea of what could be contributing to your struggles. This increased awareness, shift in perspective, and utilization of coping skills and tools can assist you in having a more satisfying and meaningful life. Treatment gains occur when evidence-based skills and tools are learned and utilized. By working collaboratively in a therapeutic relationship, you can achieve healing.

I listen to music. On a daily basis, I listen to relaxing and peaceful music. Some days I listen to music that can be uplifting or with heartfelt lyrics.
Unravel Pediatric Cancer because cancer treatments designed to treat adults are used on children making the treatments less effective. Unravel Pediatric Cancer supports pediatric cancer research by providing unrestricted funds to support researchers’ innovations. This cause touches my heart because I wish children could not have cancer so they could all have the opportunity to grow up and not have to suffer in this way.
