I pride myself on creating a comfortable and safe environment for my clients to open up and process emotions.

My Therapy Style

I have a passion for providing effective, evidence-based care which will allow you to build resilience and learn not only about yourself but also take away tangible skills you can continue to utilize after services have come to an end. I pride myself on creating a comfortable and safe environment for my clients to open up and process emotions. Since becoming a mother, I have focused on supporting mothers through the transition into motherhood as well as navigating the ups and downs that come with reparenting ourselves while raising children. I will meet you where you are and walk alongside you to create and meet your goals.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional to help provide the emotional support we all need but are not all lucky enough to get.

What are your interests outside of work?

My time outside of work is spent with my husband, 2 young children, and our dog. I enjoy being outside, reading, practicing yoga, and binging shows on Netflix after the babies are asleep.

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

I make it a priority to get outside everyday which usually looks like a family walk.

What book have you read more than once?

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. Every time I re-read this book I am in a different phase of life and I get new insights and understanding. The story evolves as you evolve.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Namaste For Compassion. We teach yoga and mindfulness as mental health tools to alleviate trauma in our community. I am biased being I am on the board but I am really proud of what we have been able to accomplish and do for our community.

How do you recharge?

I have found reading light-hearted books and nightly catch up conversations with my husband help recharge me the most in this busy season of life.

Do you have any pets?

I have one dog named Winston. My favorite story about Winston is that we rescued him the week we found out we were pregnant with our first born. The timing of him becoming a part of our family was very special.
