Therapist, Coach

I have a passion for personal education and cultivating skills for healthy relationships. I utilize trauma-informed, family systems, and attachment-based approaches in therapy. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults. My goal as a clinician is to empower clients as they learn to face personal discontent and work towards preparing themselves for their own fulfilling futures.
