"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf." - Jon Kabat-Zin -

I aim to support, guide, uplift and ground you. Whatever your challenges may be, I am here to walk by your side along your journey to bettering your life and your spirit, mind and body. I have over 10 years experience in the mental health field and am very passionate about helping others. I love what I do and I hope to hear from you if you're searching for help. You are not alone. Keep going.

Hello, I’m a clinical mental health counselor & I’ve worked in hospitals, community mental health centers, mobile crisis units, substance treatment centers and my personal favorite, outpatient therapy! I offer individual, couples and group therapy. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy often, but am trained in other treatment styles to meet your individual needs. I also specialize in trauma informed care and offer EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and Cognitive Processing Therapy. My areas of passion include addiction, trauma, mood disorders, men's issues, anger and anxiety. I specialize in adults and teens. I also incorporate positive psychology techniques into my craft as I believe recognizing our strengths will reinforce our ability to believe in our own capability and self-efficacy (the belief that we are capable of doing things to achieve a positive effect)!
