About Your Practice
In my personal journey of navigating life and relationships, I have experienced the transformative power of vulnerability and connection in safe relational spaces. Working in social work, I realized how much I love working one-on-one with individuals, where I can listen, honor, and connect with their stories. In therapy, I can use these experiences and my natural desire to connect with individual's hearts and minds.
