I believe that our lives tell a story full of adventures, successes, trials, and tribulations. I also
believe that each one of us holds the power to control the narrative of how that story will be told.
Through my whole-person approach, I aim to provide the support that will allow you to improve
your strengths and find some that you never even knew that you had. My therapeutic goal is to
improve your sense of well-being and self-esteem in a way that will allow you to tell the story of
your life in a way that empowers you to live the life that you want.
I have worked in the non-profit field for over 15 years, both locally and internationally. This included working with clients of all ages that have experienced a variety of complex traumas as well as a spectrum of symptomologies which includes PTSD, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, suicidal ideation, self-harm, personality disorders, substance use, sleep problems, eating disorders, sexual dysfunctions, and domestic violence. Working in the field of mental health fulfills me in the sense that I genuinely believe that there is a profound strength inside each of us which can be tapped into and used to help us to live happy and fulfilling lives, and I am honored to assist others in the process of discovering their own strengths.
