Whatever you are going through, I am here to help!
Life is like a rollercoaster. Cheesy, I know, but it’s one of my favorite metaphors for life. It’s filled with so many ups and downs, at times we’re holding on for dear life and at others, we put our hands up in the air and enjoy the ride. It’s helpful to have someone beside you when you’re going through the scary parts — and that’s why I’m here. I am passionate about cultivating a safe, judgment-free space for my clients to work through the hardships of life and heal + grow. Empathy, compassion, and presence are qualities I bring to every session and have found that clients perceive me as warm, kind, and personable.
I use a person-centered, mindfulness-based approach in my therapeutic work and meet clients where they’re at. I view therapy as a collaborative process, where you are in the driver's seat and I in the passenger, navigating the road together.
I know how hard it can be to take the step to begin therapy and do the hard work of healing and bettering ourselves. I also know how powerful of a tool it can be for creating the life we want to lead. I truly believe you will feel grateful you made this time for yourself once you make the jump. I look forward to joining you on the rollercoaster ride!
