About My Clients

There is so much stress and busyness that after a while, we look in the mirror and don't even recognize ourselves. In working with women, I come from a place of understanding the journey. I work with you to become free from overwhelm, rediscover yourself, prioritize according to your desires, and find ways to truly be your best.

My Background and Approach

I feel like my practice is an extension of myself and the culmination of over a decade of professional experience combined with my own human experience. I work from a Mindfulness-based approach combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist in immediate anxiety reduction and create long term habits to promote overall wellbeing. I have spent the last decade and a half in various roles working with individuals and families. I opened the doors of my private practice in January of 2018 after spending three years providing behavioral health services in a medical setting.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

What most informs my work outside of my educational and professional background is life experience. I am... An avid believer in the strength of insight and intention. An advocate for Special Education and Dyslexia Awareness. A life long learner. A supporter of EVERY individuals right to live authentically and true to themselves without judgement and most importantly with support, acceptance, and LOVE.
