Therapy Style

Being compassionate, down-to-earth, and an authentic human being is my approach. I meet you where you are at and do not judge you for the decisions you have made or the way you are currently handling a challenging situation. Life can be tough - at times we all make choices, take action, or cope in a way that is not in our best interests. We may do this because its what we learned growing up, it was the only way we could survive at the time, or maybe it was the first thing we thought of.

I consider myself a holistic, integrative therapist where challenges are not dealt with in isolation. When we experience a challenge, most of the time it doesn't affect just one area of our life - but many areas can get out of balance. That is why I explore with someone their relationships with family and friends, their career, and most importantly, the relationship they have with themselves. After helping people work through the day-to-day struggles that a challenge might create, I like to get to the root cause of what is creating this challenge. I want to help make a deep and lasting change, not just help surface level problems or situations.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I think this is one of the best jobs in the world. It's amazing to experience with individuals the ups and downs on their journey. Every time someone shares with me something deeply personal, positive or negative, I am always touched and feel privileged that they want to share it with me.

I love how I am able to make a human connection. With so much noise and distractions in our lives, I feel very lucky that most of my days are focused on what makes life real and meaningful. When I hear a sad experience, I can shed a tear. When a couple reconnects or strengthens their bond, my heart can feel warm and tingly. When a person lands their dream job, I can get excited. I don't know any other job where you get to do this.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

Being around the people I love!

How do you recharge?

I recharge by hiking, eating at farm to table restaurants, and going to great coffee spots with friends.

Do you have any pets?

I absolutely love animals and currently have a Devon Rex cat, Lena, and a Lion Mane bunny named waffles. I only recently starting having a bunny as a pet and I love watching the bunny and cat play together. I never thought they would be friends!
