  • The Road to Healing Begins Here

    “The world gives you so much pain and here you are making gold of it there is nothing purer than that.”

    – Rupi Kaur

    I help people get unstuck in their negative thought patterns and behaviors, and work toward unapologetically loving themselves and their lives. A lot of my clients see me after being in an unhealthy romantic relationship that depleted them of their energy, made them question their reality and themselves, which lead to confusion and self-doubt. Most of my clients also experienced not feeling loved, heard, or valued by their caregivers throughout childhood and adolescence. Both instances can have a significant impact on a person’s life, relationships, and self-esteem.

    Trauma therapy can help you on your path to healing, self-discovery, and self-reflection. Trauma therapy such as Brainspotting can help you heal from stored trauma in the brain. It can help you understand yourself better and bring light to subconscious forms of coping and dealing with issues in your life that might not be helpful.

    My mission is for you to achieve self-love because you deserve to live life fully. I feel confident that we can work together to set goals and nourish the most important relationship of all, the one with yourself. If you are ready to take the first step in your healing process, please feel free to reach out so we can set up a free consultation.


    My specialties include:

    Trauma Therapy

    The majority of people have experienced, or will experience some form of trauma in their lives. Such as losing a loved one, abuse, witnessing violence, car accidents, natural disasters, serious injury, amongst other events. Trauma therapy will provide a space for you to share your hardships and get restorative support.

    Therapy for Depression

    Depression can cause you to feel sad, lonely, and at times isolated. Speaking with a trusted therapist can be like lending a hand to pull you out of a dark tunnel, so you can start feeling more confident and working towards your happiness.

    Anxiety Treatment

    Anxiety can prevent you from truly connecting with others, performing well at work, overthinking, and cause you to limit your possibilities in life out of fear that something bad might happen. In our work together, I will create a relaxed and comfortable setting for you to learn relaxation techniques to reduce your worries and fears.
