I am an LPC- Associate who specializes in working with individuals and couples, who are working through anxiety, relationships concerns, communication, infertility, grief, adoption issues and trauma.

As people sometimes we can feel stuck and scared. When going through events that are out of our control we can feel a little lost. Maybe you are struggling in your relationships with your significant other, or you have been struggling emotionally and feeling overwhelmed with all of the emotions. Or you have a history of trauma and you need help unpacking it all. I am here to help walk with you through these experiences and help you get back to a hopeful place where you can enjoy life again. I enjoy working with clients that are trying to work through a difficult situation in their life and clients that are trying to gain a sense of control.
I believe my clients are the experts in their life and I am here to take the journey with them. I want my clients to be able to develop the healthy boundaries in their lives and know how important self care is during the therapy journey as well. I will hold space for my clients during session and know that they are never judged. I want my clients to feel safe in sharing during their session and to be able to open up. If this is your first step in your healing journey I am proud of you for taking this step as I know the first step is the hardest at times.
It is time to be who YOU want to be. So Let’s do this!
