I knew I wanted to get into a career path that would make a difference in people’s lives. This interest led me to study psychological science and eventually a full-time job. I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and go above and beyond to cater to their needs.
I genuinely care for all of my clients and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek.
I have worked with a variety of individuals dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives.

Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes, seeking therapy is the best way to put things into perspective. Your well-being and mental strength is my number one priority. I’m happy to guide you through all of life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.
“You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.”
All About Therapy
In this age of technology, where we are being pulled in so many directions, it is easy to become overwhelmed and distracted. That is why self-care is a must and therapy is the best decision. With our day to day responsibilities, it is easy to put ourselves last on the list or not on the list at all.
Whether it's childhood wounds or the challenges of day to day living. Therapy gives us a unique opportunity to speak freely without judgment in a safe space reserved just for us.
So if you've never been to therapy or it happens to be a regular part of your self-care. I would love to share in your journey helping you become your truest and greatest self!
Services I Offer
With You Every Step of the Way
Whether you are looking to improve what is already working or are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, a cancer diagnosis, postpartum depression, loss or even the daily challenges of being a caregiver to a loved one, together we can work to help you live your very best life.
I am grounded in a Person-Centered approach but pull from many other theoretical orientations to help remove the obstacles that are keeping you from moving forward. Every person is unique, and the road of therapy shouldn't be any different.
Throughout our lives, we go through many trials. My goal is to help you with yours by providing a safe space for you to share without the fear of judgment knowing that I will be with you every step of the way to bring you closer to having peace.
Are you living your best life? Are you able to show up authentically and communicate your needs to others? In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. I’m confident you’ll find my personalized Individual Therapy beneficial and inspirational.

Have you let the busyness of work, children's activities or just the day to day distractions get in the way of healthy communication between you and your partner? Or are you empty nesters trying to rediscover each other? If either of these scenarios sounds familiar, contact me today to let me help you learn effective communication skills so that you can support one another and thrive while achieving your life's goals together.
The place you call home should be your sanctuary, a place where you can walk through the door, leave the chaos of the day behind and hang your armor. Sadly, many people walk through the door and put their armor on. If this sounds familiar and you are looking for a better way to communicate and connect with your family, contact me today and let me help you get back to a peaceful space.
Adolescent - Young Adult
Being an adolescent or a young adult has never been more challenging than it is today. There is more pressure than ever to perform, fit in and succeed. Transitioning from a child to an adult can be daunting. Add to that mental health issues which can cause more difficulties at home, school, or with friends. Therapy can be a safe space for you to process your thoughts and emotions in regard to all of the changes that you're experiencing. Please contact me for help in developing coping skills and strategies.
