You are worthy of the best life has to offer. I fully understand the impact of societal, familial, and peer pressures on teens and young adults’ mental wellness. It can be challenging to navigate barriers to change alone, so let’s tackle those hurdles together to work towards what you want out of life. I am committed to be your biggest advocate and will do what I can to empower you as we work towards the life you deserve.
What To Expect From Our Work Together
You and I will work together to get a clear picture of who you are, remove a lot of the self-doubt, add some perspective and build upon the strengths you already possess. My role is to both challenge and support you throughout the process to draw out existing strengths, initiate the healing process and promote growth. I strive to create a space that feels warm, empathetic and safe to explore the reasons for which you seek therapy.
What You Need to Know About Me
Here’s a little bit more about me: I have spent the vast majority of my adult life working in higher education as I pursued my career aspirations of becoming a therapist. I live by the mantra “be the person you needed to be when you were younger.” In my free time, I enjoy exploring the local food scene and documenting my experiences with food photography, binging the latest Netflix series, or learning new skills through Tik Tok.
