Together on the Journey.
Throughout my life I have noticed that when the road gets rough, choosing to lean into trustworthy and meaningful relationships can be incredibly powerful. Hearing, “I’m here for you” or “I had no idea you were carrying so much. Thank you for telling me”, can bring light back into a dark and hopeless place. It is because of this that I believe we do not have to do it alone.
The partnership built in therapy is a safe space where you are seen and accepted; you have the freedom to be curious, explore your experiences, and begin your healing and transformation journey.
What I Do
Individual therapy is sacred space where you are able to explore your experiences within a secure and authentic relationship.

The other day I was talking to a mother about her parenting journey and she said something that resonated with me: “In that moment I was saying to myself, ‘Yep, I’m that mom’”. Can you guess what moment we were talking about? I’ll give you some hints: Target, shopping cart, and grapes. The moment she …
Oftentimes therapy can be more effective when clients are intentional with reading supplemental material outside of the therapy session. In my clinical work, I often suggest books, movies, video clips, and music to my clients that support their personal work, challenges them to think differently, and help them feel known and not alone. The resources …
