Since my first psychology class as an adolescent I have been interested and fascinated by human behavior and psyche.  I started working in the mental health field over 23 years ago and have been a licensed clinical mental health counselor for over 18 years. I feel honored in this time to have had the opportunity to meet and work with individuals from every walk of life in a variety of settings.  

My passion lies in working with individuals who are invested in being an active participant in their healing journey.  I focus on ways to help individuals learn how to connect with their self and others in healthy and desired ways, increase awareness, emotional regulation, self-compassion, and feel your intrinsic worth.  



My passion for learning, curiosity, compassion, personal experience, and commitment to personal health and transformation aid me in facilitating a safe, connected, and inclusive space for individuals. 

I enjoy spending my free time adventuring with family and friends, learning, traveling, vegging out, and love my alone time to reflect, relax, and regenerate.
