My Ideal Client

If you're someone who's ever been told, or made to feel, that you're "too much" or "have a lot of baggage", then let me reassure you in saying that you are enough, you matter, and the pain you carry will never be a burden in our work together. You deserve to know and trust your self-worth; to understand your importance in this world; and to feel secure in your relationships. As your therapist, I offer you a constant source of positivity and encouragement as you process, grow, and heal.

My Approach to Helping

One therapy does not fit all - You are unique and your therapy should be no different. I genuinely believe in offering multiple approaches so that each person feels comfortable. Whether it be through talk, nature, or art our work together will be centered around what you need. You are the expert on you!

Why I Became a Therapist

I was inspired to become a therapist through my own experiences in therapy. Things I had struggled with my entire life were suddenly being viewed in different ways, almost as if I were a different person seeing them for the first time. I was finally able to let go of the pain I'd been carrying from childhood and began rebuilding relationships that had once been severed. Therapy helped me find acceptance in those around me and more importantly in myself. My personal journey in therapy is why I became a therapist and continues to be what I strive to offer every person I work with.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • EcoTherapy External link
  • Experiential External link

    It is through our experiences that we're able to open new doors to healing and growth. Through various experiential activities, you're able to consider new ways of being and therapeutically experience your emotions and thoughts.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    Emotionally Focused therapy is centered in attachment. As people, we all crave and deserve secure attachments and relationships. In therapy, we work to rebuild those secure bonds.
