Finding Hope in Every Situation
Trauma, grief, and loss can come in many different forms. Anxiety and depression
can be paralyzing/overwhelming, and the thought of overcoming it, discouraging.
I chose to become a mental health counselor because I believe there is hope. I
believe within each of us, regardless of the shape and size of our challenges, lies the power to heal. I find great purpose in connecting with others and working to explore resources and pathways for change to occur- and believe therapy to be an essential part of mental health that facilitates this growth in a nonjudgmental, unbiased way.
Clinically, I have specialized training in trauma, grief & loss, depression, anxiety, ADHD, attachment disorder, sexual abuse, and substance use.
On a personal note, I consider myself caring, understanding, and like to find the silver lining in life. I value connection with others and quality time with close friends and family (my husband and two boys). My hobbies and interests outside of counseling include cooking/baking, running/hiking, soccer, yoga, travel, trying new restaurants, sewing, and music (singing and piano).
