My goal is to work collaboratively with you as we learn, explore, problem-solve together to enhance your relationships, confidence, and overall quality of life. I specialize in trauma work, somatic work, grief/loss, relationship challenges, and depression.
My belief is that people are deserving of therapeutic support and a space to focus solely on themselves and their needs. My job is to promote health, happiness, well-being in the most compassionate and non-judgmental way possible. I value the stories of each individual and am passionate about drawing out strengths and resilience in my clients. I believe people are genuinely doing their best but may be lacking the support they need to improve their quality of life.

Wintering by Katherine May, I read it seasonally as it helps me process why our moods/energy levels shift with the seasons.
Our House - they do incredible work in their specialty of providing grief support. I admire the clinical directors and their dedication to this area of need.
