    My Mission

    Be confident, love yourself, and put your foot down

    My mission is to create a space filled with freedom to vent (e.g., when you say, “That sh*t got me tight,” you don’t need to explain) without judgement, acknowledge intersecting perspectives and experiences, help you break unhealthy traditions, talk through choices aligned with your growth, and offer an authentic person-centered approach to healing.

    My Experience

    I’ve had experience working in several settings within the mental health field from school-based services, inpatient and hospital psychiatric assessment services, substance misuse and EAP style programs, and even equine assisted therapy. Although, I have several interests including Brainspotting, yoga, ATRs, assessment from an attachment-style lens, a person-centered mindset, I offer a wide variety of approaches and flexibility to best meet you where you are, literally as a board certified telemental health provider.

    Having received my Doctoral degree in Behavioral Health and M.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy, I have a passion for whole body wellness (LIFESTYLE medicine certified) so I bring both a physical and mental health perspective. I can work with individuals, pre-marital couples (PREPARE-ENRICH certified), and families however my ultimate joy is found in working with Black, Indigenous, and persons of color people and children.
