My Journey To Becoming A Therapist

After finishing my undergraduate studies, I experienced an uncertain path ahead.  Working with all age groups from young children to adults in a variety of settings helped me realize that I enjoy seeing others thrive.  Coaching sports, mentoring, and teaching eventually led me to mental health, where I gained experience helping others heal past pain, reflect on current emotions, and problem solve for their own days ahead.

I Enjoy Helping Others Build Their Strengths and Values

I believe that everyone has the resources to find peace with themselves and connect with others.  Success in therapy shows when therapeutic relationships and tools begin to positively influence your everyday life.  I have a natural ability to:

  • Provide empathy and understanding
  • Identify emotions, values, and goals
  • Encourage others to be themselves fully

Our Sessions Are Focused On You

Our sessions are a time for you to feel respected, safe, and empowered.  This allows you space to explore how your emotions and strengths affect your work and relationships.

As a Therapist and Coach I Embrace These Philosophies

  • Everyone has value and the ability to change
  • Self-examination is meaningful and impactful
  • Asking for help shows courage

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.
