“I became a therapist to be of service to others! Bringing warmth to someone’s life has always been my goal.”
Why I became a therapist
I find great purpose in holding space for others to engage in their mental health! I began my career in higher education where I worked with young adults. During that time, I was able to mentor and help guide students' through often times difficult, exciting and a full range of experiences they were going through. I realized that I wanted to dig deeper with others and dedicate and be of service to others! Bringing warmth to someone’s life has always been my goal. Everyone deserves grace, and allowing people to feel the value that they hold is incredibly important. Being a therapist allows me to hold space for people and give them room to breathe, process their experience, be heard and understood. I want to be a resource to my clients through the journey they are embarking on. It is a beautiful experience, and I’m honored to be a part of that.
Who I work with
I work with couples, families, and individuals, of all ages and backgrounds. Through a relational and trauma informed lens, I assist and support my clients who may be dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, and related issues. I work with people who are going through life transitions and are taking a step towards their transitions, growth and change in their lives. When working with couples, I am here to help navigate and process all of the dynamics and complexities relationships bring.

Working With Me
When working with me, we will create a space of safety and openness. Validation and connection are paramount to me. I hope to create a secure environment that will allow vulnerability at my clients’ pace. Therapy with me will be a collaborative experience where we will explore and dive into who you are and what you want out of life!
