Professional statement

I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, meaning I have knowledge and experience working with people with a wide variety of disabilities. I have received training in Trauma-Informed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is a trauma-based therapy for adolescents and children that has extensive research on its effectiveness. I have participated in trainings for suicide intervention, safety planning, and prevention, allowing me to feel comfortable addressing suicidal thoughts with clients. I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings, providing a better understanding for clients who have been hospitalized for their mental health, and a confidence to know when there is a need for hospitalization. I have worked with clients in the school setting through an outpatient clinic, allowing me to better understand the current academic environment for youth.


Message to clients

I am passionate about mental health and tackling many tough mental health situations. I have a background as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, which equips me to help those with disabilities and past trauma. Many of my clients come with significant trauma, have been hospitalized before, and feel like they are barely surviving. Together I offer hope and a way forward beyond disabilities and struggles.

As a therapist, I fundamentally believe people can change with the right guidance. I would be honored to empower you to make the changes you are striving for. I want to help you feel like you are "thriving" instead of "surviving." I am a friendly, honest, realistic and open-minded person who is easy to talk with. It is your right to be in charge of your treatment, and I will aim for open communication with you.
