About me

Underneath the pain from past challenges and fear of the future lies our most authentic selves. Whether that grief stems from childhood wounds or wounds created along the way. I work with individuals who are fatigued by the weight of their traumatic burdens and recognize that they are-and can be more-than what the trauma narrative describes. By looking through the trees and into the core of being, I help individuals navigate a terrain that appears and feels perilous. To find themselves once again at the end of their therapeutic journey.

I am a trauma informed therapist who prioritizes stability prior to processing traumatic experiences. As your therapist, we will begin working on building mental/emotional resilience in the nervous system prior to delving into past suffering. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, perfectionism, OCD, eating disorders, and attachment wounds.

I look forward to hearing ways that I can best assist in your journey towards self-discovery. Whether it is due to readiness for change or a realization that life cannot continue on the way it's being lived. I am here to provide support and potential road maps for growth and healing.
