Personal Statement

I would love to be your therapist, if you are seeking to form a therapeutic relationship with someone who is truly passionate about supporting you exactly where you are in life. I believe that meeting a client where they are eliminates the one-shoe-fits-all mentality. Every situation and circumstance is different therefore together, we will focus on YOUR reality. The fostering of a therapeutic relationship is very important. Our partnership on this journey will consist of me walking next to you with a lantern in hand as you explore without judgment.

I was once told that finding your passion will lead you to your purpose. Following my passion for people has led me to this point. My own personal life journey has shown me that sometimes you just need a nonjudgmental space to unpack the loads of life. Throughout life I have learned to say yes to me! If you are reading this, I hope that this means that you are considering saying yes to yourself. Yes to healing. Yes to growing. And, most importantly, yes to taking the brave step towards creating the life you desire and deserve!

Who I Serve

I work with children, adolescents, and adults. I am passionate about supporting individuals as they grow into their true selves. I have experience working with individuals coping with depression, anxiety, addictions and co-occurring disorders. I have experience providing support to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. I partner with my clients to explore skills and tools that help to lead to overall positive change. I also provide support to others who work in direct care professions, assisting in facilitating a therapeutic space to discuss self-care, self-improvement, preventing burnout, improving work/life balance, and processing vicarious trauma.

Theoretical Approach

I use a cognitive behavioral approach to help you take incremental steps toward behavioral changes. The mind and the body work together. I believe that when negative thoughts are occurring, negative or unwarranted behaviors follow. I use CBT to encourage a change in thinking patterns and behaviors. I believe using a cognitive approach allows my clients to not focus so much on changing their reality but changing their perception of their reality.
