I firmly believe that every individual has the inherent capacity for growth and transformation. As a therapist, my mission is to meet you where you are and guide you on your unique journey. Life's complexities can be overwhelming, and I am dedicated to helping you navigate these challenges with resilience and grace. My integrated approach incorporates the strengths of various counseling theories, including Jungian, Rogerian, Adlerian, Existentialism, Phenomenology, and Humanism, while also respecting your cultural, spiritual, and religious practices. Together, we will embark on a therapeutic journey tailored to your individual needs.
A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”

My unconventional upbringing has instilled in me a belief that our family of origin does not dictate our destiny. Throughout my professional journey, I have worked in chemical dependency, within a large hospital system, and for a small practice. My favorite experience being right where I am, as it offers the freedom to provide personalized care without the constraints of large organizations. My passion for the field drives me to continuously learn and grow, both personally and professionally.
Outside of work, you can find me either playing Switch or embracing the outdoors.
