Psychotherapist, Sex Therapist, Clinical Supervisor & Consultant I have always had an innate passion for helping others. I was introduced to psychology courses during my first years of undergraduate course work which steered me into the field of psychotherapy. I have been in private practice since 2012. I work with clients struggling with anxiety, complex trauma, relationship issues, depression, domestic violence, sexual violence, sexual concerns, and gender identity.
My education, training and experience in various areas of mental health provided me with the ability to incorporate different therapeutic methods to assist people with their individual needs. I have a holistic approach to psychotherapy. I am committed to helping you explore the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual blockages that can be built over time due to past experiences.
In my spare time I enjoy singing, doing research, and finding a new coffee spot.
