My Journey To Becoming A Therapist

Growing up in a small town watching my parents and the natural helpers they were, it is what I thought life was all about. You give, you help and always be of service. This helped to shape me into the person I am today. Simultaneously, I had to learn the hard way. I only have the capacity to give so much. I must take care of myself first!  Once my bucket is full, I can then help others. My life experiences are what led me to become the Therapist and Coach I am today.

I Bring Supportive And Encouraging Energy To Sessions

Being a Therapist and Coach is fulfilling. I love helping you become healthier, more empowered and watching your life transform. The most rewarding thing about being a Therapist is seeing you walk away lighter, experiencing freedom and excited about your life. I am committed to helping you get back to living.

I have a natural ability to:

  • Reflect your thoughts back to you
  • Uncover what’s under the surface
  • Explain mental health symptoms in an easy way to understand
  • Help you heal your past and manage your present

Our Sessions Are Focused On You

Our sessions will provide you with the space to focus on yourself without feeling selfish. In feeling safe and comfortable, you’ll be able to gain clarity and express your thoughts and feelings.

It’s important to me to provide a non-judgemental space where you can be yourself and ensure that our process is collaborative. Our sessions will fit your specific needs and concerns.

As A Therapist and Coach, I Embrace These Philosophies

  • I believe that empathy can change the world
  • I believe that there is no shame in asking for help
  • I believe that you can only heal if you take care of yourselves
  • I believe that change is possible when you allow yourself the space to do the work

When you reach out, you will talk to our Administrative Assistant Elise, share what is going on for you, ask any questions you may have and if it is determined that we are a good fit, you will get scheduled for your first session with me.


Elise will gather information and send you an email to register for our client portal to complete documentation prior to our initial 50-minute session.


All online sessions are held via video, in which you will be sent a link prior to the appointment day/time. You will begin your healing journey with your therapist by establishing a connection first, sharing your story and discovering what your goals are. Therapy is an active process and unique to each individual.
