On our journey through life we sometimes face challenges that lead us to seek additional support. Life is messy and I am here to help you pull on your strengths to get through the challenges you are facing. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental, and caring environment for you to share your story. Together we will work to find strategies and coping skills to help you increase wellness and self-awareness, learn, and grow.

I work with clients to address concerns with depression, anxiety, relationships, life transitions, and self-esteem. I am also passionate about the treatment of individuals with addiction, trauma, and co-occurring disorders. My approach to therapy is strength-based, collaborative, and interpersonal, working with you to help identify goals and grow.
