Philosophy

Entering into therapy can be daunting, but I hope to create a safe, nurturing space to ease your trepidations and fears. Together, we will create a treatment plan to meet your goals so you can live a fulfilled and empowered life. We will accomplish this through examining your reason for change and implementing strengths-based, solution-focused strategies so you can reach your highest potential.

Personal Statement

I am passionate about the positive impact that therapy can have on our lives. I am regularly caught saying “Everyone should go to therapy!” I do, however, recognize that entering into therapy can be daunting, so I applaud you for taking this first step! I believe that we are all interdependent beings and thrive in healthy, dynamic relationships. Thus, I aim to help you build and cultivate those relationships through self-reflection and self-care so you can feel fulfilled and empowered. Together, we will work collaboratively to understand your goals and take active steps in obtaining positive, lasting change.

About me

What do you love doing more than anything in the world?
I love spending time boating on the lake with the people who are most important to me.

I enjoy running outside (especially on a crisp fall day)– it is the best way to clear my mind!

What was your dream job in elementary school?
I always wanted to be a grocery store cashier! I loved grocery shopping with my mom when I was younger; it was a fun outing we had every week, and I was always allowed to choose a treat!

Somewhere tropical! I have been to a few tropical places and would like to visit more.

What is the most delicious meal you can imagine?
English food! I was born and raised in England and love all the traditional foods!
