Life's journey can throw us some real curveballs, and sometimes we need a little extra support to find our way through. Whether you're navigating the complexities of trauma, coping with grief, managing ADHD challenges, or seeking to improve your overall well-being, I’m here to lend a listening ear and a helping paw.

As a therapist, I've had the privilege of supporting a diverse group of clients who have faced various traumas, both big and small. Being apart of their recovery journey and guiding them through some of life’s everyday challenges to find peace during difficult moments has been incredible rewarding. I have developed a person-centered approach to help survivors not only feel less isolated but also to help alleviate feelings of responsibility or fault.

About Me

I believe in the power of the human-animal bond and I've seen firsthand the incredible impact animals can have on therapy. Together with my animal co-therapist Shadow, we create a warm, compassionate and safe environment where you can feel at ease discussing whatever challenges you are facing. My furry paw-tner is here to offer a calming presence and unconditional support that aids in growth and trust-building so that you can take the pawsitive steps forward on your journey of healing.

I approach trauma with what I like to call a "big picture" perspective, where we explore together how these experiences shape how we see ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. In my sessions, I often share meaningful quotes that illustrate the profound impact of trauma: "Trauma isn't just something that happens to you; it's an experience that shapes who you are," and “Heal the root, so the tree is stable.”

I bring a lot of experience beyond just helping with trauma recovery. I’ve also worked with teens, young adults, and adults on a wide range of issues like ADHD, anxiety, depression, self-harm, school or work challenges, grief, and the ups and downs of relationships. I'm passionate about supporting people through different stages of life and I craft my therapeutic toolbox to fit each person’s needs using different and innovative methods, such as animal assisted interventions, to help them heal and grow.

The Sun Will Rise

When I'm not in the office

Outside of my therapy hours, you might catch me hitting the gym, chasing that endorphin rush and staying active or catching waves at the beach. I recently have taken up gardening and that has been an adventure in itself watching my plants flourish and grow. I’m an avid fan of Dr. Seuss, puns, and corny dad jokes. I also enjoy spending time with my dogs and friends—life's all about finding joy in the little moments!
