I began working in the social work field in 2014 and have experience working with all ages. My background consists of working with groups, individuals, and families across various settings.

I believe we are all wanting to feel valued and connected. My goal as a therapist is to help each person feel accepted and heard. I feel privileged to create a safe space for clients to process complex emotions and life's challenges. I utilize various treatment modalities to promote holistic wellness and resilience. Curiosity and collaboration are at the root of my practice.
Engaging in therapy can provide an opportunity to identify ways to lean into authentic and full living. I aim to build a strong therapeutic relationship with each client to feel equipped to overcome barriers and live in alignment with their values.
