About My Clients

Feeling overwhelmed by constant change? It’s normal to feel like you’re drowning when you have so many moving pieces in life. Many of my clients are people struggling with stress and anxiety resulting from big life changes. These changes can be exciting, challenging, and all too overwhelming. Maybe you find yourself snapping at others, constantly exhausted, and struggling to find space to breathe. Together, we will discuss your goals and figure out what's next.

My Background and Approach

I have extensive experience working with young adults, military families, and people who are new to therapy. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to make sense of all the moving pieces. Life is complicated and hard; I will help you find peace amongst the chaos, prioritize your wellness, and grow closer to your truest self. I’ve been described by former clients as “genuine, decisive, and easy to connect with.” I fully recognize that reaching out for help is hard. You should be proud of yourself for taking this step. Only you can do inner work, but there’s absolutely no reason you should do it alone. Contact me for a consultation. I'm ready when you are!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I love being a social worker because I've been trained to look at problems from every possible angle. I learned to zoom out, view the big picture of my clients' lives, and identify any barriers. As a military spouse, I have first hand experience with constant change. I have spent time volunteering with the USO, I was president of our Command's FRG, and I am currently working in suicide prevention for the US Navy. I grew up in a religious environment and, with the help of my own therapist, I have spent the last few years navigating my faith transition. I feel particularly passionate about working with other individuals who find themselves in the deconstructing phase of their faith transition.
