Short Bio: As a therapist it is my hope to provide a supportive and safe space for clients to process through life’s challenges and learn how to love themselves each day. Therapy can be uncomfortable at times, but growth develops when we learn to become comfortable in the discomfort. I utilize an eclectic approach with an emphasis on CBT, DBT, and self compassion. I have experience working with teens/young adults, adults, and families in the areas of depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorders, trauma, substance abuse, mood disorders, family conflict, life transitions, and self-esteem. I am honored to be part of your healing journey.
