she/her

I support people who want to unapologetically set boundaries, discover who they are, stop people-pleasing, and improve their self-worth.

My Therapy Style

I am a trauma-informed therapist who supports clients in understanding how their experiences have impacted their relationships, self-image, motivation, work ethic, and all other aspects of life. I have been told I am very calm-natured and relatable, which clients appreciate in session. I support people who want to unapologetically set boundaries, discover who they are, stop people-pleasing, improve their self-worth, and manage their symptoms of depression and anxiety. I offer a lot of resources such as books, workbooks, podcasts, etc. to review outside of therapy which helps accelerate the therapy process.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional because I wanted to help people heal from trauma and break generational cycles of trauma. I became fascinated with psychology once I began learning about my trauma, family dynamics, and how to heal from it.

What are your interests outside of work?

I have many interests including spending time with my dog, going on hikes, going to the beach, traveling, practicing hot yoga, dancing, reading, and trying new restaurants with family and friends.

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

I practice self-care by eating nutritious food and practicing self-compassion.

What book have you read more than once?

The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, because I like how it allows me to reprogram my brain.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I like organizations that do toy drives for kids during the holidays to give back to families who aren't able to afford to buy their kids Christmas presents.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by laying out on the beach, being in the sun, and reading a good book.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have a dog and his name is Rocky. My favorite pet story is taking Rocky to the dog beach and seeing him running around and splashing in the waves. He loves the beach!
