Warm, Funny & Experienced Licensed Clinical Counselor specializing in Codependency, Trauma, and Depression. Here to create a safe non-judgmental space for healing for you and the communities and systems you are part of.

If you find yourself in a codependent relationship with either a partner, friend, or family member, it’s time to seek help. Codependent relationships are often a result of unresolved trauma. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to process your experiences. We’ll dig deep and get “real.” My approach is collaborative and depth-oriented – I don’t just sit back and nod and smile. I’ll go deep with you and empower you to create healthy boundaries in relationships that will ultimately increase your confidence and allow you to live the life you want to live, free of people-pleasing.
I primarily use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in my work. While I do challenge you to dig deep, I also use humor when appropriate and am compassionate and authentic with all my clients. We'll process the real stuff that needs to be processed and the right treatment that works for you.
I take a humanistic and culturally competent approach to my work. I want to help you heal from trauma and codependence. I’ll empower you to learn assertive communication skills and set healthy boundaries with your partners, friends, and family members. I’m here to work with you to find mental well-being and life beyond codependence.
