I believe that everyone has the ability to heal and create lasting, impactful changes. No matter how big the trauma or how deep the hopelessness, there is always something that can be done. My ultimate goal is to provide a space for clients to feel safe and supported, so they can find clarity in the challenges they are struggling with, whether that is trauma from the past or anxiety and stress from right now. Through our work, I help clients to move forward with strength and purpose and the ability to truly breathe a sigh of relief.

I specialize in individual psychotherapy with children, teens, and adults. I work with each client to carefully tailor their treatment plan. Every session is your own, and we progress at your pace. I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) tools, as well as Mindfulness practices to create healing. I specialize in trauma. I also work with individuals dealing with general anxiety, panic, and depression. I enjoy working with military spouses and families who are dealing with transitions or uncertainty. As a military spouse myself, I know what it’s like to start over. I understand the struggles of change and the toll that it can take on families.

I am here to help. I would be honored to support you on your journey.
