My style is rooted in intuitive knowledge with a firm belief that people have the innate wisdom and ability to help themselves arrive at healing. I am very client-centered and eclectic. Orchestrating a collaborative approach means a lot to me. I also consider the whole person, not only their internal struggles but also their social symbols in the world which heavily influence their experiences as they walk through life. I love providing a safe and brave space for those not always seen or heard. Awareness is key. Once you have that you can decide which direction to go next. You have the magic and are the expert of you. My role is to help you tap into that magic to decode and unravel what it looks and feels like to operate and live from your highest self.

I felt called to become a mental health professional. It's my purpose.
I enjoy nature, art, traveling, animals, and new experiences.
Going for a walk with my dog.
Connecting to the earth because it can hold whatever I release to it.
Yes, I have a Shiba Inu and American Eskimo mix. My dog is a nosy peacemaker. Once she tried to break up a fight at a dog park. It was one of the cutest things I've ever seen.
