I use a holistic approach to counseling to tailor our sessions to meet your unique needs. The most important thing to me is that you feel comfortable and supported. I have been honored to walk beside teens and adults navigating stress, depression, grief, anxiety, trauma, gender identity, sexuality, self-harm, relationships, and suicidal thoughts; look forward to walking beside you as well.

Life is a gift and can be filled with magical moments. Life is also complex; sometimes, our challenges become overwhelming and hold us back from truly living. Our experiences, the people who come in and out of our lives, and our choices shape our perspectives—influencing our thoughts and behaviors. Life also throws us curve balls that can shake us to the core and reveal unexpected and unknown parts of ourselves. You are here today searching for help for yourself or a loved one, and this singular act takes courage. It is also a step towards healing, clarity, self-love, and becoming your authentic self.

Growing up as a military dependent, I was fortunate to live in different places both in and out of the US. Change and unpredictability were the norms and while that has helped me navigate the nuances and challenges of life, it was also difficult and painful at times. I have had to reinvent myself and learn to adapt to new environments and expectations on numerous occasions. These experiences helped me develop a broad worldview and gain an appreciation for seeing things from multiple perspectives. I believe these attributes make me a better person overall and an empathetic and compassionate counselor.

Counseling can be challenging, but I aim to hold space for you in an open, caring, accepting, and non-judgmental environment. Whether you need to laugh, cry, scream or cuss. I want you to feel free to express yourself openly. Being invited into your inner thoughts, dreams, fears, and hopes is something I do not take for granted.
