"The present moment contains past and future. The secret of transformation is in the way we handle this very moment." 

Thich Nhat Hanh




I am a licensed Marriage and Family therapist and have been in practice for 13 years.  I have experience providing therapy within non profits and hospital, community and school based settings.  I have been in private practice since 2016.  I also provide an integrative energy healing approach to help to restore the healthy functioning of the energy field and thus promote and facilitate healing for body, mind and spirit. 


I believe in creating a safe and compassionate space for you to be authentically seen and heard as you are.  I use a collaborative mindfulness based approach to empower you to work through your life challenges to bring back hope, connection, and a sense of well being.  I also provide brainspotting which is a neurobiogical based, cutting edge approach that has proven to work rapidly and effectively to heal distressing feelings, deep wounds and traumas.

With this present moment, you have the ability to create the life you want despite what you have been through or the uncertainties of the future. Creating a wholistic customized approach, I can provide a grounded perspective to support you in tapping into your own inner wisdom and strengths.  I also believe in the healing power of humor and gratefulness.   Cultivating joy and gratitude helps to create balance when working through difficulties and vulnerabilities.
