Finding a therapist that you connect with is one of the most important aspects of therapy. Even more important is learning how to identify, process and manage feelings with someone you trust. I would like to help you through this process, offer perspective, and give you skills to work through it. I work with people that experience depression, anxiety, addiction, co-dependency, poor self esteem, relationship difficulties, and identity.
Communication, coping skills, looking at themes and patterns that are disruptive, boundary setting, feedback, and healthy expression are some of the tools that I find to be helpful in therapy. My hope is that through the process of building a good relationship we will begin to gain insight, learn new tools and make progress towards your goals.

I have always appreciated listening to people's story. Being a therapist gives me the opportunity to not only listen, but help other's work through whatever process they may be in. It's an honor and a privilege to help those in need and be the understanding ear for those that need to share their experience.
I love to camp, listen to music and bake! I am not ashamed to admit that I have spent months trying to perfect the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe. I believe that is one positive thing that has resulted from being home during the pandemic.
I love to be outside when the sun is just below the horizon. There is something really special about that light and the stillness that comes during that time of day.
Facing Codependency by Pia Melody. I have read this book over and over again and recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about themselves and how to show up better in relationship with others.
I love being in the kitchen baking. I love trying out new recipes, ingredients and techniques.
