I prefer to be flexible in my therapeutic approach because different circumstances bring individuals to therapy. Whether it's depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship/family conflict, grief, or poor self-esteem; we can work together to recognize what is the best intervention for you. For example, exploring how the past has impacted your present circumstance, negative thinking, or needing guidance in finding a solution to your problem. I provide a safe space and individualized intervention strategies for clients to be able to explore, process, cope and heal from life challenges.

Based on past personal experiences the mental health field helped me recognize I am not a prisoner of the past and trauma doesn't define me. The therapeutic process provides a safe space to help individuals process feelings, learn and develop new skills to overcome life obstacles and transform challenges into power and purpose.
I enjoy hiking, running, and cooking.
I exercise on a daily basis.
