Do you feel pulled in a million directions, unable to fit it all in? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? I help clients learn how to manage depression, anxiety, anger, and avoid burnout. I believe you can cope with anything life throws at you and not feel like your stressors are controlling you.

 

I'm here to help you cope with overwhelming stress, relationship issues, or cycles of anxiety and depression. Seeking help can be scary but remember that asking for help is a sign of great strength. You deserve a safe, empathetic, and judgement-free environment to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

In my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my family as well as our two four legged children Daily and Izzy.  I also enjoy watching true crime, comedy shows, and listening to good music. 

I look forward to working with you!
