Helping Clients Thrive

My goal is to connect with children and give them a safe space to explore their hurts and hangups with freedom and joy.

What I Do For Fun

I love to explore new restaurants and cook for whoever is in my home. I really love to travel to places I have never been before and try things related to the local customs. I am usually found trying to recreate something I’ve enjoyed somewhere and making my family try it too.

What I Like About Being a Therapist

At the end of the day, we are all human beings trying to find our way. I love to offer a listening ear and see the relief on the face of a client when they realize someone cares and is ready to help. Most people are heartbroken when they come in. It’s a joy to offer hope and a plan to move forward. I do therapy with kids and teens and I love helping them find their voice.
