A BIT ABOUT ME

When I’m not working with clients, you can find me cooking, spinning, practicing yoga, meditating, going hiking with my husband, or playing with our Pomeranian

 (who you may meet in our virtual sessions).

 

As a therapist, my role is to help you relate to painful thoughts and feelings in a new way, with mindfulness and compassion, so I spend a lot of time learning and reading about psychology and mindfulness in my free time in order to help us both get the most out of our sessions together.

 

Most of all, my goal is to be a compassionate guide to help you find joy, meaning, and fulfillment in your life.
