*Now accepting new clients*  

Navigating relationships can sometimes be a difficult process that requires guidance and support. When our relationships are struggling and we are feeling left down by our partner, it can take a toll on our mental health. It is my desire as your therapist to offer guidance and support to help you find ways to help your relationships grow and become more fulfilling. It is my passion to help and empower others to extend the same love and empathy they would towards others onto themselves. We all need reminders that our needs are just as important as others and it is my desire to support you in that practice.

I enjoy working with those navigating loss, couples and families navigating life transitions and stressors, couples facing issues with infidelity, sexual issues, and general anxiety. I believe in taking small steps and walking before running. I offer a direct, yet compassionate and curious approach and I encourage my clients to bring forward nothing but their authentic selves.


When I am not seeing clients or in school, I find joy in writing music, running, spending quality time with friends and family, cooking, and listening to podcasts. Hiking or being on the water is another wonderful for me to recharge and find clarity. I try and practice being present in everything I do and I find talking to friends and family is the best way to get support.

If you feel that I am the right fit, schedule with me today!  I look forward to witnessing your growth!
