I am empathetic, understanding and trustworthy, and will meet you where you are at in each session. I specialize in working with trauma, grief and loss, depression, anxiety and with adolescents. I deeply love the work that I do and strive to create a safe space for you to feel open and vulnerable enough to be your true self. I seek to further the conversations, growth and knowledge of grief and loss, trauma, depression and anxiety in order to help our culture and society reach healthier and more positive ways to better understand mental illness. Being is enough. I strongly believe that what most people want and yearn for in this world is to feel understood, heard and to simply be enough. Not only for others, but mostly for ourselves. Life can be tough, however the way we choose to navigate through the obstacles it can bring says so much more. I will walk alongside you, encouraging you to be your most authentic self (feelings and all), while softly challenging you in areas you may struggle in. 'We are in this together.'
