Why should I pick you as my therapist?

I’m like that best friend who listens without interrupting and provides gentle guidance and feedback toward your best life, education about how your mental health symptoms are either helping or hurting you, and – once in a while – adds some humor and lightness as needed.

You can do this! You can face your pain and get better!

What do you like to do for fun?

I love paddleboarding, being at the beach, catching the sunrise or sunset, reading, decorating, all things related to positive mental health and parenting (I never want to stop learning and growing), good food, and laughter.
