I have significant experience in trauma work, navigating relationships, Parenting and holistic wellness practices. I believe the therapeutic process is about relationship and connection.

My approach allows me to directly connect with clients in a manner that is comfortable and authentic. Through treatment I provide my clients with healthy challenges, and autonomy in guiding their own treatment. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for clients’ process their feelings and emotions leading to growth.
