Hey There

I know what it is like to go through changes in life, and the importance of having support through it. We are not meant to do all this alone!

I am proud of my clients’ bravery and willingness to grow. I feel honored to share space with people in their times of need and meet them with open hands and heart. I grew up in a family where members are living with anxiety, depression, autism, substance use, and ADHD. Reducing mental health stigma and providing more access to care are my passions. 

I have always been a part of helping-related work: from coaching sports and athletic training, to researching better cancer treatments, and now as a therapist. I have two years of experience working with youth, teens, and young adults as a therapist.  I am committed to providing compassion, empathy, clarity, and acceptance while sharing tools that are evidence-based to support mental health. I look forward to learning about your challenges, discussing what could make them more manageable, and rediscovering your strengths to move you towards what you value most.

               I currently have a wait list, and I know your care is important and feeling responsive support may be an important part of your journey.  Please reach out to another member of the team that may be able to support you sooner and/or please click "start intake" as this will time stamp where you are on my wait and I will let you know as soon as I have openings for new clients.
