I have a passion for healing and helping to uncover the answers that are already within.

My Therapy Style

I like to utilize a creative approach to therapy to help tailor to your needs. I view myself as an eclectic counselor, as I like to pull from various theories to best fit you individually. As a yoga instructor and a therapist, I believe in a holistic perspective when it comes to healing. I also incorporate humor, transparency, empathy, and open-mindedness. I have a passion for healing and helping to uncover the answers that are already within. It would be an honor to be a part of your healing journey and to assist you in creating the harmony that you’ve been searching for. You deserve a happier and healthier you.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I chose to become a counselor because I love to witness the growth that others achieve. I have a passion for healing, and counseling allows me to be a part of others’ healing journeys almost every day.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I enjoy painting, drawing, learning, and doing yoga.

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

I play with my son and either exercise or do yoga daily to help support my mental and emotional well-being.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by being in nature in some way or pampering myself. Whether it's going for a hike, a walk, grounding, taking a trip, or giving myself a spa day.
