Who I am

It’s too cliche to say I became a therapist because it’s very fulfilling helping others.

Although that is the truth – I also get to meet many wonderful people whose lives I witness change and see the results of their hard work. It’s so rewarding!

It is subjective as to what one finds fulfilling. I find that human connection is the one thing that is pretty much universal. I am privileged to witness connections being made, changed, and improved with loved ones and within oneself.

I am a mother, an athlete, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a stepmom, a colleague, a granddaughter, a cousin, an in-law, and a therapist. I wear many different hats and am proud of each one and to be a part of each one.

I’ll help you get back on track.

A better life is within reach, and you don’t have to create a new path alone.
