Daytime & Evening Appointments

As a combat veteran, former military spouse and an immigrant I know what feeling like an outsider and dealing with trauma feels like. I am here to bring normality to your life and provide a safe space where you can process your feelings and emotions.

As a clinician, I serve as a guide on your journey to letting your true self be seen. Since 2016, I have been honored to support individuals and families as they take the brave step of embarking on the path toward healing from anxiety, addiction, depression, sexual assault and Complex PTSD. I specialize in providing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), & Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT).

My belief is that everyone deserves to be thriving throughout life, not just surviving. When our mental health starts impacting our daily activities and routines, it can be hard to see a way to improve the situation. I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental, caring environment for my clients to share their current struggles. Together we can address your current concerns and develop a plan that will fit your goals.
If you’re ready to get started, I always offer a 15-min consult to see if we are a good fit. I’d love to help you or a member of your family get the help they need to live and feel better.

“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It’s about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.” – Brene Brown.
