What do you most look forward to about the work you do?

Getting to help clients connect with their inner "struggle muscle". I think all of us can benefit as humans from feeling seen and heard in the sometimes tricky work of trying to show and live in the world as our true selves.

What do you most value about the work you do?

I have always been so amazed to witness the resilience and strengths that clients bring to their lives. I value getting to reflect those things back when folks sometimes have a hard time recognizing those talents and resources within themselves.

What is something clients might never guess about you?

I have a secret passion for financial literacy after learning the hard way about credit card debt when I first left home.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A veterinarian! (Until I fully realized that meant dealing with animals in pain.) So then for awhile I wanted to be a personal assistant, but changed my mind after having a couple summer internship experiences in the entertainment industry that made it clear that wouldn't give me the work/life balance I wanted in my life.

Whether you are navigating a particularly challenging season of life or wanting to get to the root of habits and patterns that don't seem to be serving you, you don't have to walk that path alone. Together we can develop strategies and tools to help you cope with whatever you are facing. We can explore and engage your strengths and inner wisdom to build the courage and resilience for bravehearted living.

I have experience supporting clients with grief, challenging family dynamics, stigmatized losses, and cultivating a sense of identity after going through a transition such as the ending of a relationship, finishing school, or changing careers.

I have worked in the mental health field for more than 15 years, with 6 of those years taking place in crisis/inpatient psychiatric care settings. So whether you have utilized those kinds of services yourself, or who have a loved one that has, I would bring some shared understanding of those settings and how that level of care can sometimes impact folks.

I am passionate about helping you consider what boundaries might support you in living the life you want to live and clarifying how you can align your life with your values. Many of my past clients have described me as collaborative and compassionate, and I feel honored to get to know and support people from all walks of life in my practice.
