About Me

It's your path — you know you best. You are holding the map and saying where to go — I help you navigate, process, unpack and heal. I will meet you where you're at as we work to make connections, identify patterns and reframe old stories that do not serve you. I am also trained in EMDR & approach all treatment through a trauma-informed, systemic, anti-oppression lens. I am a visionary curator of transformative experiences. I will help you create healthy coping skills and empower you to grow — and change. Healing begins when you are heard and seen. You deserve to feel better. I promise to be fully present. There are many internal and external intersections with mental wellness — no topics are off limits. I am licensed in Missouri, Kansas, Florida and Vermont.
