About My Clients

You are on a constant rotation of feeling anxious, depressed, worried, or stressed. You have a lot of responsibilities, people counting on you, and yet sometimes it feels like you can barely keep your head above water. You're not exactly sure when life became this way. You've been through so much and still have so much to do. How exactly are you suppose to keep this up? You have tried to manage all of this on your own and have decided that it's time to seek help from someone else.

My Background and Approach

Deciding to begin the therapy process is an important and life changing decision. Life can bring so many beautiful and challenging experiences and opportunities. As a therapist, I believe that each of us has the knowledge and ability to create the life that we desire. Sometimes we just need some support and guidance in that process. I know therapy can be uncomfortable and akward at first. As a therapist, I respect how vulnerable and humbling it can be to take the necessary steps toward therapy. I strive to offer a comfortable and safe space to help you define your own goals. We will work collaboratively together to reach your goals, but you will always be the driver. Clients tell me that I am different from other therapists. There are therapists that will simply sit and listen to you. I am not one of those therapists. I will listen and support you AND I will challenge you to work towards building a life that lights you up.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that each of us has a warrior within. Sometimes trauma and life experiences can cause us to lose touch with her. As women, the world is constantly telling us that we should live small and not make too much noise. But YOU were made to take up space and be loud! You deserve to own your power, find your passion, and be authentically yourself. In my work with children and families, I believe that whether your family has been created through birth, foster, or adoption, developing attachment, connection, and unconditional love is paramount to creating a healthy and loving home. I work closely with children, teens, and caregivers to develop communication skills and interactions that make the home safe and comfortable for all. I understand how important it is to feel comfortable and compatible with your therapist. Feel free to contact me to see if I would be a good fit for your therapy journey. I look forward to speaking with you!
