Welcome! I’ve found that by engaging in the process of psychotherapy, life begins to change. No matter where you are in your life, psychotherapy can take you to the next level. As we change, life changes. My trust in this process comes from my work with clients, as well as my own personal growth work. I love to support clients in their process of getting unstuck and moving toward their full potential in life. I believe we are spiritual beings living a human experience. As we navigate through the Soul’s journey of life our inner light can become covered by life’s challenges. There are times we need to be with someone who can help us through our process of growth.

I am extremely intuitive and spiritual in my approach, as well as warm, lighthearted and relational. I create a grounded, meditative space where my clients can be reflective, self-aware and curious.
