What drew me to this work:

Through my own personal and professional experiences I was led on a path to pursue a role as a therapist. I have always had a passion for connecting with others on a deeper level and this profession provides me with the opportunity to do so. It is extremely rewarding to be able to be a part of someone’s journey in learning to become comfortable with being vulnerable in order to find true happiness.

My style:

I am warm, engaged, direct, and flexible. My goal is to work as a team with my clients to help them see the strengths that they already possess. I take an individual approach as each client and their needs are unique. It is my mission to ensure that each client feels safe and maintains a sense of hope.
