HELLO, NICE TO MEET YOU!

Hello, Nice to Meet you! - I bring a gentle and supportive perspective from time spent in several different settings within the mental-health field. I value every person’s journey as unique and know that trust is something that is earned in the therapeutic relationship.
My diverse experience and willingness to go the extra mile helps me stand out as a provider. In between sessions, I work tirelessly to research the most effective methods of providing clinical counseling to all types of mental illnesses, with an emphasis on depression and anxiety.
Through my experience in the field, I have assisted vulnerable individuals and families in the most challenging of circumstances. By navigating near impossible situations, I have developed resiliency and problem-solving skills that are rare to the field of mental health.

Clients can expect a compassionate and collaborative partner in this difficult journey towards change. I strive to be genuine and flexible to give you the space you need to do difficult work. I utilize a strengths-based approach and understand that for most people there can be several topics to cover in any given therapy visit. I look forward to helping you search for answers to difficult questions.
