About me

Welcome!

     In the past 13 years I have had the privilege of working with  many people during some of the most stressful and difficult times in their lives. I've learned that no 2 stories (or people) are the same, and that the human spirit has a tremendous ability to heal and grow.  


     I will meet you where ever you are in your journey with compassion and understanding. You are so much more than your symptoms and pain points and counseling should be as unique as you are. With lots of evidence-based resources, training and experience to draw from, I will strive to ensure our work together accomplishes the goals you want it to.  


You DESERVE to be happy!


“What lies behind us and what lies before us 

are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
