“Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.” -John C. Maxwell

The world changes around us. How we evolve as the world around us is changing is work that we do with intention. This means that we do not enter into this work lightly. It takes strength, desire, and commitment to seek support and to make lasting change. I strive to ensure I have provided a safe space from which to explore the changes you wish to create and also to support you along the way. While working together clients are empowered to navigate their challenges, grow through exploration, and to improve their day-to-day functioning.

You are the expert of your experience and together we can find the right combination of treatment modalities and skill-building to support meeting your end-goal(s). My goals for the best possible outcomes with a client include providing holistic and person-centered treatment that remains true to the client’s needs. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing (MI), and Written Exposure Therapy. My aim is to ensure that I am serving my clients holistically and collaboratively, always. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming provider.
