As a teenager, I found myself sitting in a therapy office with a stranger who my family said would help, I was skeptical, but was anxious, depressed and desperate to regain a sense of control over my life. She changed my life and inspired me to become a therapist myself. Therapy helped me learn not only to believe in myself, but how to trust myself- my actions and my emotions. Being able to witness individuals gain confidence in themselves is one of the most rewarding parts of being a therapist. 
I specialize in working with individuals who have anxiety, depression, grief and loss, career exploration, and substance use disorders. I have many loved ones who are in different forms and models of recovery. I practice utilizing a person centered; strength based approach, with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Internal Family Systems woven in. I believe that every human is intricately complicated and beautiful, and what is needed in their healing journey is unique to them. I am committed to building a place where you can be authentically you, in order to discover what works best.
