Let’s be honest, life can be tough. Constant changes, daily stressors, relationship woes, anxiety issues, low self-esteem, and past traumas can take a toll on us all. Need a safe space and a supportive listening ear to help guide you through the challenges in life? My mission is to provide you with a safe space where you can feel accepted just as you are and are able to feel emotions that may be suppressed due to the busy nature of life, process these thoughts and feelings, promote self-awareness, and inspire you to grow, heal and move forward.

I have experience using strength-based & mind-body approaches, and trauma-informed therapeutic techniques that help clients feel seen, heard, and understood while learning to overcome trauma and relational pain. Clients working with me receive deep empathy and focused attention to the healing process. Additionally, I have a passion for helping couples resolve communication issues, repair trust, and rebuild intimacy. I teach couples communication skills that will allow both parties to feel heard!

It is my goal to help clients tap into their strengths & learn the tools needed to get through life’s challenges and begin living their most purposeful and authentic life.

In my spare time, I like to spend time with my family and friends, cook southern comfort food, travel, and enjoy the outdoors!
