Co-Founder, Secretary, Licensed Educational Psychologist, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I am passionate about supporting clients who are struggling and need a supportive space to commit to better understanding themselves and what they want to make of this journey. I have extensive experience in working with anxiety, depression, communication issues and anger. 

My background began working with schools and parents as a special education teacher for students on the autism spectrum. I later decided to follow my interests in evaluation by becoming a school psychologist and licensed educational psychologist.  I found that the therapeutic connections I made through assessment to be particularly rewarding and made the decision to pursue an additional license in the field of therapy. 

My background in education lends itself to working with children and adolescents as well as adults. I have had the privilege of working with families in schools and feel my experience in this capacity has prepared me for understanding the unique situations facing families with challenging issues.  

Together, we can work to amplify this desire for change into a pattern of growth that positively impacts your relationship with yourself and your loved ones. I can't wait to meet you!
