About me

I am a Licensed Mental Health therapist and have 6 years of experiences working with a variety of people. I have worked with clients with a wide range of issues, such as, depression, anxiety, trauma, gender dysphoria, OCD, relationship issues and personality disorders. I also have worked with addiction and people who struggling with abuse/domestic violence.
My therapy style is warm, relaxed and compassionate. I want every person to have the opportunity to heal and grow, no matter the issues they are struggling with. My approach includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, TF=CBT, humanistic, psychodynamic, Gotttman and ACT. My focus is to create a treatment plan that meets your needs and goals during treatment. I also make sure to meet you where you're at and provide support.

I want to have a place that is open, safe and non-judgmental. I know this is a big step for you to take to begin therapy.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I have had other therapist in the past and never felt fully comfortable in being totally open. With her I can say whatever and don’t feel judged at all. She has help me find ways to try to look abd work in my many issues at hand. Even though I struggle working on one thing at a time. She very chill which makes a major difference in opening up and love that about her.
