My hope is that individuals can develop a greater understanding of thoughts and behavioral patterns that are causing them to feel stuck.

My Therapy Style

My therapy style is casual, motivational, and empowering. I tend to utilize holistic modalities that help one to increase a greater sense of self-awareness, and mind-body connection, and support one's personal growth in a compassionate manner. My hope is that individuals can develop a greater understanding of thoughts and behavioral patterns that are causing them to feel stuck while working toward making changes that lead to positive outcomes.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I enjoy the process of helping individuals better their lives.

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

I like to take walks throughout the day in order to move my body, get fresh air and clear my mind.

What book have you read more than once?

The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. This book is one I turn to often and recommend to others. It so eloquently brings to light how we relate to our thoughts, for better or worse, and how this awareness can lead to an improved relationship with ourselves as we choose how to associate with them.

Do you have any pets?

I have a loving, energized German shepherd who keeps me very busy as well as a low-maintenance parakeet. My first pet was a hand-tamed parakeet which learned to say several words and would fetch a toy around the room. I am particularly fascinated with these sweet, playful, and smart little birds.
