Do you ever feel like you are stuck in the past or plagued by negative thoughts of the future? Have you ever had times when you felt like you were a prisoner of your own mind? If you are looking to gain tools to heal from the past or present, I would be honored to support you in your journey. I am a heart-and soul-centered therapist who is passionate about helping clients let go of unhealthy patterns connected to trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, and life transitions.
I'm certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and incorporate IFS (Internal Family Systems), somatic and attachment work to promote the gentle release of trauma from the mind and body.
Navigating the ups and downs of life alone can be challenging. I welcome the opportunity to work alongside you in an inclusive, compassionate, and nonjudgmental space so you feel fully supported in your journey. I hope to help your experience in therapy be something you look forward to so that you can live the peaceful and present life you deserve.

I firmly believe that our greatest wounds become our greatest teachers. My personal healing journey has fed my passion and has given me an expansive capacity to hold clients and their stories with a mixture of validation and hope. It is an honor to walk alongside other humans as they develop the courage to heal from the wounds of their past and cultivate the future they desire.
My interests include exercise, volunteering, friends, family, travel, reading.
