"PAIN IS INEVITABLE; SUFFERING IS OPTIONAL."
I became a therapist because I know what it feels like to suffer and have come to understand, through mindfulness and compassion that while "pain is inevitable, suffering is optional."
As a therapist, my role is to help you relate to painful thoughts and feelings in a new way to build the life you want!
When I’m not working with clients, you can find me meditating, practicing yoga, spinning, cooking, going on adventures with my husband, or playing with our Pomeranian
(who you may meet in our virtual sessions).
