About me

I am an independent licensed mental health therapist (LIMHP) and I have been working in the counseling field since 2015. I have experience conducting individual and group therapy, in-office and online, in the schools, and outpatient settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, ADHD, OCD, life-changes, and trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I do not believe in stigmatizing labels. I believe in meeting everyone where they are in their journey and tailoring treatment to meet their specific needs. My approach includes a combination of humanistic, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and interpersonal counseling.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

She's been so helpful in helping me diagnose and figure out my problems; she's a great listener and asks great questions. After my sessions with her I feel a lot better about my life and the direction it's going, would recommend her as a therapist.

She’s is GREAT! Not only does she listen but she asks questions and in engaging with the conversation. She seems to understand me and also asks clarifying questions to be sure. She makes me feel comfortable to share anything which is great and not always easy with any therapist. She Makes me think of ways to improve myself. I really like her and enjoy our time so much that I don’t want the session to be over
