Thank you for being here.

As a trauma and loss survivor, I have dedicated my professional career to helping you find healing and relief from your trauma(s). This has been a journey for my therapy practice and it’s one I cherish.

Working with clients to overcome their anxieties, grief, and trauma is something near and dear to my heart. It’s been a true privilege to work for clients like you, to have them confide in me and to trust in our therapeutic relationship. It is my hope to help more clients achieve a better sense of self and heightened overall wellbeing. I do this by investigating how you’ve developed your symptoms, assisting you in overcoming your reservations, and finally, providing you with the skills necessary to create lasting change in your life.
