When we experience intense emotions that result from life’s stressor, transitions, or past experiences and traumas, it can be difficult to feel hope. We can begin to feel stuck and struggle to see that there is more than this difficult combination of circumstances. I want to be here for you and walk with you as you navigate this journey and help you know that you do not have to do this alone. I work collaboratively with my clients in connecting with their strengths and building a strong positive relationship with themselves and others.

The journey to healing is unique to everyone. Understanding the experience of my clients and how they view the world around them is paramount. I know it can be difficult to choose someone you can trust to collaboratively guide you through this time. I am deeply committed to fostering an environment that promotes safety for individuals with diverse identities and empowers them to build a fulfilling life. I merge my understanding of self-empowerment, cultural knowledge, strength-based work and unconditional positive regard into the healing process.

I bring over a decade of work in the area of trauma with survivors in various social service positions and have now transitioned into a therapeutic role. I value the therapeutic relationship and strive to create a compassionate and warm space to actively work with my clients in navigating their journey and building insight.

I work with individuals, couples and families experiencing adjustment/transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma and grief and loss.
