I believe that beginning the counseling process is truly one of the most courageous things a person can do. The counseling space provides the invitation for you to experience compassion, increase self-awareness, and be empowered to make choices aligned with who you are and what brings meaning to your life. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, self-worth issues, eating and body image issues, relationship challenges, or a life change or transition – I extend this invitation to you. 

Prior to beginning clinical work, I worked as a childcare coordinator in the nonprofit sector for five years, supporting women and children recovering from homelessness and addiction. This experience was a huge catalyst that motivated me to pursue a career in counseling. I am now a licensed professional counselor (LPC), and I absolutely love working with people as they navigate their journey of self-discovery and healing. 

I have four years of professional experience working with adolescents and adults across the lifespan, and am grounded in a person-centered philosophy. I utilize a variety of approaches to cater to each person’s specific needs including acceptance and commitment therapy, self-compassion, mindfulness, and polyvagal theory. It is my utmost priority to provide a non-judgemental space that is filled with compassion, hope, creativity, and safety. I am committed to meeting you where they are and seeing you as a whole person – taking your strengths, values, and goals into account. I love helping teens and adults get in touch with what brings meaning to their life, grow confident in who they are, overcome challenges, and live in alignment with their passions and values. 

I am also passionate about helping people work through various types of trauma. Whether you have experienced early childhood trauma, neglect, physical abuse, sexual abuse, bullying, traumatic loss, or other traumatic experiences – taking the first step towards addressing what has happened to you can be incredibly challenging. I am committed to helping people work through the trauma they have experienced at their own pace, and offer a safe space for that courageous journey. 

I believe in all people’s innate ability to grow and heal, and I consider it an absolute honor to work with each person I encounter. I look forward to journeying with you.
