Associate Therapist & Outreach Coordinator

Approach to Therapy

Hello and welcome. You are likely here because you are looking for support and compassion either for yourself or a loved one, and I am grateful to be a part of that journey. My hope is to uplift you as you move toward increased healing and wholeness in your life. I take a holistic, collaborative, practical, and empathic approach. My aim is to empower you to work with your emotions and to utilize your strengths as a means of moving through anxiety, overwhelm, trauma, and insecurities. I invite you to give me a call in order for us to explore if we will be a good fit to work together. We will have the ability to talk about your hopes for therapy and can move to set up an appointment if it feels right for you. Together, we will discover and explore new, integrated, healthier, more aligned ways of being, and ultimately work to achieve increased peace and connection with yourself and others.

I have experience working with individuals from diverse backgrounds and walks of life. I have worked extensively with children, adolescents, and young adults providing both therapy and advocacy for my clients. I am excited to continue to work with individuals of all ages, genders, and goals for therapy and to support my clients in finding the best tools for their healing.

More About Me

In my free time I love to go hiking, take a hot yoga class, go to the farmers market, horseback ride, and spend time with my boyfriend and our dog. I am passionate about the environment, holistic health and wellness and enjoy spending as much time in nature as possible! I am also a certified holistic health coach.
