I strive to perform as an eclectic therapist. That being, I will take all modalities into mind and use the technique that will best meet my client where they are at in their particular journey. Being flexible is an important factor that enables a therapist to meet each clients needs and leads to more personalized outcomes.

For some, your job is a vocation. To me, my career is an avocation. I truly felt called to do this work. I couldn't imagine doing anything but this.
A love to combine my two favorite things, food and travel! In our family, we call it Foodie Travel. We travel to some place new and find all of the good local food, famous recipes and restaurants; and experience it all!! This includes everything from unplanned, spur of the moment road trips to our yearly family vacation that brings in family from all corners of the world.
I put my self care as a priority. I love being in nature. So I make sure to do one thing every day that brings me outside into nature. It could be walking my dogs, gardening or just sitting quietly in my back yard.
I have two rescue pit bulls. Both were found homeless and injured. I rescued both of them. Each time I was just supposed to foster them until they found a forever home. However, I failed as a foster parent both times and became their forever home instead.
