About My Clients

Over the years, I have developed a strong interest in working with individuals navigating life transitions whether that is college, graduate school, becoming a parent, significant relationship changes, grief and loss, or career related shifts. Oftentimes we can feel overwhelmed, disengaged, anxious, and uncertain about what is yet to come amidst all life's changes. You are ready for something different, you are ready to live a more fulfilling and connected life.

My Background and Approach

I believe that healing is a highly unique journey that takes courage, curiosity, and acceptance, but frankly, it looks just a little bit different for everyone. Mindfulness and the power of relationship are core elements of my work while also using narrative, existential, and ACT interventions. I believe in and utilize a holistic approach to healing, centering your voice and empowering you to create meaningful change. Navigating big life questions and transitions can be challenging, to say the least. Let’s work together as you traverse these changes and create a richer, more fulfilling life. I have morning and afternoon availability – in person or virtual. Please email me directly to set up a consultation. I would be honored to be part of your process of healing.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in the healing power of nature and green spaces. When I'm not in-session, I am most likely on a neighborhood walk, gardening, volunteering, or finding a new hike.
