My Perspective


As a cancer survivor, I'm inspired to help others navigate through difficult life transitions so they can learn to grow stronger from challenges rather than living in overwhelm.


It's okay to feel lost or discouraged for a season. Let's honor that because it brought you to this moment of trying to find a therapist to support you through navigating life in a better way. That's an incredible step towards accepting where you're at and having support. More importantly, you must believe at least a little that things can get better by talking about it. Everyone has a wise self within them that believes in growth... Look, here you are!

I am trained in EMDR, CBT and EFT (adapted for individuals as well) for a non-judgmental, strength-based approach to honor past and future paths. I specialize in trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, and relationship/communication struggles. Check out my Postpartum Group Therapy

Like the Zen proverb, I believe "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." I know it's challenging to start a new path with a brand new therapist, but please know that if you're waiting for something to change to live a joyful life, you're waiting too long. Take this chance to provide yourself with the balm you need to heal and grow.

"For what it's worth, it's never too late... to be whoever you want to be. Start whenever you want. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you're not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again."  -Eric Roth
