My Therapy Style

I believe in empowerment, and in my practice, I bring compassion, honesty, and mutual respect. My focus is on helping you identify your own strengths and internal resources, and build the skills needed to live your fullest life. I believe that it is a privilege to be trusted with your story and know that within each being, there lies a great deal of strength. Sometimes, we just need someone to help us unlock and see that strength.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I always thought the best way to find your purpose in life was to match what you love with what you are good at. I love people and I am a good listener and deeply compassionate and empathetic, which pointed me in a career as a healer. I believe in a growth mindset and I love helping people discover their own power and strength.

What are your interests outside of work?

Hiking, travel, yoga, meditation, and writing.

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

I do a daily meditation and keep active

What book have you read more than once?

I have read 21 Rituals to Change Your Life: Daily Practices to Bring Greater Inner Peace and Happiness by Theresa Cheung many times. This book is great for creating life changing habits and we all can use a refresher about what things are healthy for us.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Girls on the Run! It combines my love of an active lifestyle with female empowerment.
