We all have challenges that we face each day. Overcoming these challenges is a huge accomplishment—and you deserve credit for each and every victory. Sometimes, though, these challenges can turn into obstacles. When this happens, it can be difficult to know what to do next. I want to commend you for taking the step of pursuing therapy and prioritizing yourself. Asking for help isn’t always easy, as we sometimes convince ourselves that everything is okay simply because we are comfortable. You have taken a leap in requesting some help, and that is something I will never take for granted as your therapist. 

     As a counselor, I don’t believe in a “one size fits all” approach. We are all unique and process stress in our own way. I like to borrow principles from several therapeutic modalities, while upholding areas of focus in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Person-Centered Therapy. In addition to being a mental health counselor (limited permit), I am also a school counselor who has experience predominantly in high schools. In both school and clinical settings, I have worked with children to adults encountering concerns related to anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, and more. No matter what you are going through, we will leave no stone unturned on your journey to becoming the most genuine version of yourself.

     In my free time, I love seeing new movies (I LOVE horror), trying new restaurants, and creating great memories with my friends and family.
