Business Bio
“Life is tough” - reading that phrase might really resonate with you, but it might also seem like the understatement of the year because in fact, life feels impossible and unbearable. Or maybe, you feel that the word “tough” is too strong and life is actually going ok, but there are some rough spots you could use help with. No matter where you are in life, what’s happening, or how challenging you may find it, you deserve to be supported through it and reaching out is a great step. Remember, you are never “too broken” to be helped and your problems are never “too small” to be worth asking for help.
I work from a person-centered approach, and believe you are the expert on your life. Some approaches that I often draw from include humanistic theories, EMDR, CBT, attachment-based, strength-based, solution-focused, and play therapy (yes, even adults can play if they want!). Together, we will make a plan based on your goals for therapy and how to get there.
Outside of work, you’ll find me playing with my niblings, spending time in nature, reading a book, learning something new, watching (aka bingeing) the latest TV series I’m obsessed with, playing a cozy game on my switch, or playing with my pets. I look forward to learning more about you, so feel free to reach out to see if I’m the right fit for you!
