Being with people and helping people gets me excited to come to work every day. Every day that I get to go to work provides me an opportunity to help someone reimagine what is possible and help them create a life they’ve always dreamed of. Being able to be a part of our client’s journey by inspiring them, and being inspired by them, gets me up in the morning and excited for a new day of “work.”

I have been working in the behavioral health field, helping people change their lives in meaningful ways for over 15 years. Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity and privilege to meet thousands of people and deeply understand who they are and how we can make positive changes in their life, to help them overcome whatever obstacles may be in their way. What I’ve learned from all of my clients and my friends is that the meaning of life is truly unique to each person. We can view each day as an endless grind, or we can see each day as an opportunity to experience something new, help a loved one, take better care of ourselves, learn something interesting, and so on. This learning has carried me through difficult times, and as people connect to their values and what’s important to them, they find their meaning, and go out to conquer the world.

The beauty of being human is that we can grow and change. I felt a calling a long time ago to be someone who helped people, and as a therapist, I have developed a toolbox of coping skills and techniques that can help so many people. I love nothing more than seeing how each person uniquely uses the skills they learn with me to build a life that sparks joy and brings them fulfillment.

My team and I are excited to meet you, and we’re ready to work with you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us, we’re here to help you forge a new path forward, together.
