“Why do I feel so empty and numb?” “Why do my emotions get so out of control?” “Why can’t I just relax and stop thinking about this?” “Why do I push people away?” “Why do I keep doing this when I know it makes things worse, not better?” “How can I ever get past this fear and anger to move forward in my life?” If you are asking yourself questions like these, I would like to help you find answers and learn actions you can take to start feeling better!


Therapy is about reconnecting with and accessing strengths that are already inside you – while disengaging from ingrained ways of thinking and acting that aren’t working in your life right now. I see my role as a therapist as an encouraging, caring and collaborative guide in your process of self discovery and growth. I offer knowledge and tools that can help along the way. I
draw from several trauma-informed, therapeutic approaches, and we will learn together what helps you most.

I am experienced in treating anxiety, depression, and trauma using evidence-supported therapies including CBT and DBT and EMDR. I welcome the opportunity to work with adults of all ages, cultures and identities. I enjoy working with clients who choose to bring their spiritual beliefs into therapy. I personally find being in nature very therapeutic and encourage physical activity and outdoor experiences to improve mental health. I believe in the value of taking care of both mind and body for overall well-being.


It takes courage to enter a new relationship and share what is going on inside. In our sessions, my first priority will be to help you feel safe and supported. I will consistently give you my undivided attention, honesty, and respect. If your instincts are saying “yes” after reading this, I hope you will contact me!
