I offer an atmosphere for open communication where you can increase awareness, understanding, confidence, and coping skills within a trusting relationship. I want to work with you to see life’s challenges that come your way as something that can be effectively managed and overcome, leaving satisfaction with yourself, others, and life.
I have over 15 years of experience working in the mental health field and over 10 years working as a Licensed Clinician. The populations I have served come from all backgrounds, communities, and identities. I can support your experience in a safe and supportive space to explore your current challenges and work towards the outcomes and goals you identify.

I always felt connected to supporting others so when I was told a long time ago that I should check out the social work profession so I could be a therapist, I began exploring. I truly believe I landed in the perfect profession for me and feel so fortunate to be a part of others' journeys.
My interests outside of work include being with my young kids, and watching them learn and grow. I also value time with my family and working on our house.
I admire any organization or non-profit that is committed to raising awareness and reducing the stigma around mental health. I am trained in the recovery model and strength-based perspective and find I align with any philosophy that mental health is health and that no one should feel shame or guilt in acknowledging a need to address their mental health.
I recharge by getting caught up on my favorite shows.
I am currently in the first year of owning my first puppy. It's been an adventure and I can't imagine our family without him. He sometimes makes an appearance!
