About me

It is frustrating and exhausting moving through each day feeling like you don’t have the tools you need to thrive. We can work together to develop new skills and insights so you can feel more empowered in working towards your goals and being on a path that brings you joy. I believe in a strengths-based empowerment approach, working together with clients to overcome challenges and find solutions. Helping people find their true authentic self and live a life they love is what I love about being a therapist!

Do you feel sad or have no energy or oomph? Life is too short to surrender to bad relationships, let trauma control us, or be anxious/angry all the time. I want you to be free of emotional pain and find meaning and purpose in family, friendships, spirituality, work, and all other life areas. I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker-Clinical (LCSW-C). I work with teens and adults of all ages, couples/partners, and families. My area of expertise is working with individuals who have experienced trauma and those struggling with anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, and self-esteem issues.
I believe that a warm, compassionate, nonjudgmental relationship combined with evidence-based practices can provide a strong foundation for change and healing. I incorporate trauma-informed approaches and treatments such as EMDR and TF-CBT. Additionally, I use cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based techniques.
I encourage authentic living with awareness, gentleness, humor, creativity, and courage. I am currently accepting patients for telehealth sessions. At this time, I do not participate with insurance networks. However, I do provide everything you need for out-of-network reimbursement. I would be honored to support you and walk alongside you on your journey.
