We have all had times when we want to withdraw within ourselves to avoid situations, interactions, or undesirable environments. I work with clients dealing with family/generational trauma that has left them feeling insecure, unsure of themselves, and less worthy. I want to partner with you to create a safe space through counseling, a holistic therapeutic approach that may include trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, and yoga that is customized for you and your goals.
I believe combining these practices gives you that safe space in our ever-changing world. It is a mind-body integration that, when applied systematically, allows you to identify what you are retreating from and make restorative changes. It is adaptable for ALL. I am also trauma-focused and trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I am grateful to partner with you, walk this path together, and explore the why behind your troubles. Getting to the why allows us to make the changes you desperately need.

I became a mental health professional because my passion is making a direct and positive impact on others. This allows me to help others heal and find their true selves so they can live a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life.
My interests outside of work include yoga, listening to podcasts and audiobooks, traveling, and most recently pickle ball!
I practice mindfulness meditation daily to help keep me grounded.
My favorite local organization is Bonton Farms. I deeply appreciate that they work to combat systemic inequity while providing the foundation to radically change future generations.
I recharge through mindfulness, yoga, getting active, and seeing the world. A good afternoon nap works just as well!!
