Life is unpredictable and challenging at times, yet there is hope. Sharing your story requires courage. I believe therapy is a dynamic process that, while occasionally difficult, leads to positive transformation and growth. I intend to collaborate with clients to build greater self-compassion and awareness of their values and goals, allowing them to uncover and live more authentic lives. I strive to recognize your strengths and wounds and work with you to discover the best path forward. It takes bravery and determination to embark upon a therapeutic relationship, and I am honored to be a part of your journey.

I am currently a student at Ottawa University, pursuing a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. I currently hold bachelor's degrees in communications and elementary education, and I find joy in learning and helping others. I was an educator for a number of years and discovered that my passion lies in creating a safe space for individuals to share their stories and help guide them through challenges in life, ultimately building a more resilient foundation for personal identity. I am trained in treating acute stress and trauma and use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Positive Psychology with clients.

In my free time, I like to golf, hike, travel, and spend time with family and friends. I also value having time for myself to decompress and relax through reading, journaling, and painting.
