The basis for my therapy practice includes openness, respect, curiosity, and accountability with every client I meet to ensure a comfortable and effective therapeutic process. I believe one of the greatest parts about being a therapist is sharing in other’s lives and being privileged to hear stories that have shaped people into who they are and who they would like to become. It is very important for me to work with clients at their own pace in order to create a safe space to share, process, learn, and heal from experiences in order to improve quality of life.
I have to give a lot of credit to people who come to therapy because it means they are willing to do some work to make positive changes in their lives, and it can be hard work to accomplish! It is truly a privilege to go along with clients on their journey to lead happier and healthier lives.

What do you love doing more than anything in the world?
I love spending time with my husband, son, and animals at home. Crocheting is a close second!
What is the self-care strategy you use most often?
I love to do kickboxing because it makes me feel healthy and strong.
What was your dream job when you were in elementary school?
Pretty sure I wanted to be a singer… not because I had the talent (I didn’t), it just seemed like a cool gig.
What is your favorite movie of all time?
I can’t pick just one! I love a variety – Amadeus, Moulin Rouge, The Princess Bride, to name a few.
Describe your ideal vacation? Has it happened yet?
I want to travel around the UK with my family to see the sights, meet new people, and experience different cultures. It has not happened yet, but we’ll get there someday!
What is the most delicious meal you can imagine?
A variety of sushi (prepared by the professionals, of course).
