“There is power in reclaiming your story and truly loving yourself.”
Why I became a therapist
I have always loved stories and understanding the many human experiences. I pursued acting as a way to connect with these unique stories, channel vulnerability, and find beauty even in the darkest moments of life. Now, I am ready to hear my clients’ stories and collaborate together to find meaning and joy in their lives. My own therapeutic journey has shown me that therapy is challenging yet transformative. There is power in reclaiming your story and truly loving yourself. The therapeutic experience has changed my life and my relationships with others and I hope to offer that same transformative experience to my clients.
Who I work with
I work with individuals, couples, and families struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions,and perinatal mental health. I enjoy working with couples navigating marriage, pregnancy, parenting, divorce, and communication issues. Whatever your definition of family is, I welcome it into the space and encourage my clients to bring friends, siblings, or partners to our work if it feels significant. My other areas of interest include working with actors and artists experiencing major life transitions. As a fellow actor, I understand the many stressors that can disrupt our lives, and I offer my empathy and experiences to help guide you on your journey.

Working With Me
I lead with curiosity and humor, offering a safe space for everyone that walks into the room. I have been trained to work systemically, looking at the relationships and systems that impact your life. I bring creativity, collaboration, and kindness into the therapy room. I believe therapy can be a place of exploration and play where we can take risks together and build deeper connections. As your therapist, I hope to cultivate a meaningful relationship with you that allows for vulnerability, honesty, and, yes, even laughter.
