I have years of experience providing care to individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, ADHD those going through life transitions, and LGBTQIA+ individuals, and supporting people who have experienced trauma. During sessions, I use a holistic approach to therapy. I tend to combine trauma-informed client-centered therapy, brain-based somatic approaches (SE therapy), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy with art, movement, and lifestyle changes.
I believe anyone can grow and change at any time in their life. I believe our brains are not always our best allies and learning how to work around old neurological patterns can significantly improve people's lives. All humans deserve kindness and respect. I strive to create a safe and healing space for you to grow.

I really enjoy reading, spending time with my family, going on walks, and exercising and I am passionate about natural and spiritual healing remedies (herbal teas, salves, and meditation).
I practice mindfulness and gratefulness regularly to stay grounded in the present. I also make sure to move my body by going on a walk or exercising regularly.
When Nietzsche Wept by Irvin Yalom. I am passionate about Psychology and Philosophy and this book was the perfect combination of both.
Yes, we have a dog and a cat. Their names are Milo and Owen and they are both wonderful. I love that our cat Owen often follows us on walks when we take Milo on his daily stroll.
