I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a passion for helping others uncover hidden strengths to make positive changes in their lives. I am grateful for the opportunity to get to know my clients on a personal level and watch them progress and accomplish their goals. In my work, I believe that every individual is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. I like to take time to really get to know my clients and work with them at their own pace using therapeutic approaches that best fit their needs. I take pride in my work and am constantly seeking out new opportunities to grow as a therapist through educational opportunities and trainings. When I’m not working, I enjoy nourishing my mental health by spending quality time with friends and family, cooking and baking new recipes, and exploring the outdoors.

Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
Taking care of our mental health is as essential to our well-being as taking care of our physical health. In my work, I am passionate about reducing stigma around mental health related topics and hope to encourage others to seek help when they need it. Taking positive steps to care for yourself both inside and out should be celebrated.
