As a licensed clinical therapist for over 5 years, my goal is to assist my clients in obtaining insight into their daily functioning in order to live a healthy meaningful life. Using evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Grief Counseling, Trauma Informed Care, and Supportive Counseling, I empower my clients to develop healthy coping techniques and skills to manage their mental health. I have experience working with clients that struggle with chronic illness, loss, substance use, work and daily life stressors, relationship issues and family conflict. My client centered approach allows me to meet my clients where they are and help them achieve their objectives in therapy.

I became a mental health professional because I was intrigued by the human mind and how one can gain control over their thoughts to allow for healthy behaviors and meaningful interactions.
I have a strong passion for art, both creating and admiring. My undergraduate degree is in fine art.
The Choice by Dr. Edith Eger. I enjoy this book because it demonstrates how one can maintain resiliency after trauma.
I do not have any pets but I have done volunteer work at day care centers for dogs. My favorite story is from my first time going there as soon as I sat down, the small dogs were fighting for my affection and just wanted to be near me and be pet. This always make me think of how pure and sweet dogs are and reminds me of the simple things in life.
