I believe every person has the innate ability to overcome difficulties life presents. I believe we are made for connection and everyone needs someone to walk alongside them at some point in their life. In the counseling space, I value authenticity, collaboration, education and treasure insightful, "a ha," moments. I approach therapy holistically, and believe a picture of wellness includes body, mind and spirit. I pull from various approaches including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, EMDR, and Internal Family Systems. I learn something from every client and value what you bring to our time together. I am passionate about de-stigmatizing mental health, and enjoy helping my clients experience healing and restoration, learn new strategies for challenges, develop insight, and find JOY! I am here to encourage, empower and support you on your journey!
