A healthy mind is something that I believe is essential to overall health and I strive to do my best to help others improve in this area. Meeting clients where they are and helping them work through their ambivalence is something that I feel is essential to the therapeutic relationship. I specialize in helping women navigate life's transitions, set boundaries, and improve their self-confidence. I have years of experience working with adult populations to help them gain tools to better manage their lives. In my sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and reactions. In the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results. In my free time I enjoy working jigsaw and Sudoku puzzles, traveling, spending time with family, and watching the HGTV network.
I look forward to helping you on this journey of becoming the best version of you!
