I'm glad you're here. It's an honor to be a part of someone's growth process. I aim to provide a warm, genuine, non-judgmental environment in sessions. I value creating a safe space where clients can experience acceptance and support. I believe healing and growth are possible for everyone regardless of their struggle, and that therapy is a collaborative process between a therapist and a client.


I use attachment and somatic interventions, as well as EMDR to decrease symptoms and improve life satisfaction. My hope is to provide education, connection, and understanding to empower clients to take control of their life and experience embodiment and joy. My co-therapists, Bowser and Noodle, are always a bright spot for clients when sitting with hard feelings.


When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, working out, spending time outside, spending time with my dogs, family, and friends, reading, and attending one of my many book clubs. As an ex-collegiate soccer athlete, I always make time to sweat each day. I am passionate about Harry Potter, dogs, and all things mental health!



 

I wrote and published a children's book in December of 2023 about my sweet therapy pup, Stabler, who died unexpectedly. I wanted to honor his memory by allowing him to continue his "work" of helping people, with the hope of providing a resource for parents and children to talk about grief and loss. Check it out on amazon!
