My journey to mental healthcare
My journey to becoming a therapist began in Massachusetts while attending Smith College School for Social Work. It is there I discovered the intersection between psyche and soul. To live deeply in every moment, we direct the the mind and body to become one. We learn how to focus our attention and to listen without reacting and judging. We learn how to open our hearts, experience freedom, and to release pain and suffering. It is an honor and privilege to do this work.
My goals for you
Together we will explore your life's purpose. Set priorities and achieve what matters most. Learn how to stop having the same destructive conversations. Rebuild trust, affection, and intimacy. Choose how to best spend your time, Live with passion and create a life worth living. Lastly, I will encourage you to go all in! I promise the journey is worth it.
My first session with you
I bring a wealth of knowledge and a deep commitment to fostering health and personal growth. Our first session together is about getting to know you and understanding your current health, habits, and behaviors. I will listen with care as you explain where you have been and where you would like to go. Together we will build trust, create a nurturing space where healing thrives and create an individualized treatment plan that is right for you.
