When in times of unusual stress or upheaval, we are not meant to go it alone. I am here to partner with you on your journey; and address the challenges you face to realize a more balanced, joyful life.

 

I work with adolescents, and adults across the lifespan. This includes serving individuals, couples, families, and groups. As a trauma specialist and Certified Advanced Grief Counseling Specialist, I am privileged to help healthcare providers, first responders, military personnel, survivors of domestic and sexual abuse; and others dealing with grief, loss, and post-traumatic stress. Additionally, I support clients struggling with life transitions, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders.

 

Licensed in 2014, my counseling career began in the school setting and in residential care. I worked in the emergency room, and hospital inpatient and intensive outpatient environments. I also volunteered for a sexual violence prevention organization, honoring the experiences of survivors of abuse.

My treatment approach focuses on creating awareness, processing emotions, and finding solutions. I teach coping strategies to help reduce stress and increase empowerment. With a strengths-based perspective, we can move through difficult experiences and build resiliency. As your partner, I hope to help you tell your story, find meaning and envision a brighter future! 

 

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
