About Me

I have expertise in working with depression, anxiety, low-self-esteem, and emotion dysregulation. Depression and anxiety affect so many of us, and no one should go through this journey alone. Each person has a unique story, and I am here to help you process difficult emotions such as loneliness, fear, worthlessness, self-harming, co-dependency, and relationship issues. My experiences and passions led me to carve a niche specializing in trauma. I am an “out of the box” person, and enjoy being creative with therapy and adjusting treatment based on your needs. I am trained in a multitude of evidence-based therapies, but mostly gravitate towards using in EMDR, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centered Therapies I enjoy working with each client to help them find balance in their life and within themselves. I create a warm, empathetic space where I assist in nurturing personal growth to help you become the best version of yourself. No matter where you are at in your life’s journey, I am here to help you get to where you want to be.
