As a therapist, I have had the privilege of helping countless individuals navigate the complex world of mental health. Over the years, I've learned that there is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to wellness, each person is unique and needs individualized care. I am committed to help people create lasting transformations in their lives by combining evidence-based treatments with a personalized approach that considers the whole person.

My Story

My journey towards becoming a therapist was fueled by a deep-rooted fascination with mental health treatment, sparked early on through my studies in forensic psychology. However, it was early in my career as a substance abuse counselor that my true passion emerged. I found myself captivated by the philosophy and humanistic approach of a colleague who was further along in their clinical practice. She seamlessly combined empathy, active listening, and genuine care for others that created an environment where clients felt seen, heard, and valued. 

I was drawn to the philosophy and the depth of connection she established with her clients, which inspired me to pursue social work as my life's work. I was inspired to learn from their example and adopt the same humanistic principles, fostering emotional healing and personal growth for my clients. This key experience not only shaped my commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those I serve but also defined my own journey of growth and self-discovery as a therapist.
