“I love helping clients find connections to create change! Getting to know clients and their unique interests helps to make therapy a more personal and meaningful experience. Whether it be music, sports, animals, or another fun hobby, we can work together to make positive changes in a fun and engaging way!”
Fun Fact: Growing up, I danced for over 15 years and had the opportunity to compete across the country, eventually leading to dancing at the collegiate level. I love ballet!
