Licensed in
Therapy licenses aren't like driver's licenses — each state has its own set of rules. To offer care, a provider needs to be licensed in the state you're located in when sessions are happening.

Profile
“I work to be human with my clients in the therapy room, which has shaped great therapeutic relationships and led to great success.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have grown up always caring about other people and their emotions. This along with my own life experiences and struggles led me to the therapy profession. I am passionate about the work I do with clients to help them build up their lives and process difficult moments. My career has allowed me to work closely with my clients to process life transitions, communicate problems in their relationships, maintain healthy relationships with their bodies, explore grief and mourning, and process current and past traumas. I am trained in systems and relationships as a marriage and family therapist and have completed the first level of Gottman training that’s specific to working with couples. I work to be human with my clients in the therapy room, which has shaped great therapeutic relationships and led to great success.
What should someone know about working with you?
In my therapy practice, my clients are the experts on their lives. I listen to your goals and the areas you want to focus on as we outline what therapy will look like for you. I work to give my clients skills that work for them, as I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. I work with individuals and couples between the ages of 20-45 who are working through life adjustments, relationship issues, and anxiety. As clients begin to use the tools we have worked on outside of session and gain insight into their behaviors and emotions, we begin to look at different goals and lessen the amount of therapy needed.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
It excites me to see mental health in the mainstream media as something that is just as important as physical health. I work hard to destigmatize therapy and mental health struggles. The world is a tough place to live right now and it is so important that we work hard to make sure we are processing our emotions and experiences in order to live meaningful lives.
