In therapy, you have the opportunity to be vulnerable and open with your emotions. My hope is to create a safe, nonjudgmental, supportive and nurturing space for you to do so. I value the trusting relationship that is built between therapist and client and strive to work collaboratively with you in finding solutions that are unique to your situation. In my work, I trust that you are the expert of your own experience and want to aid in strengthening your own confidence and security. I come from a compassionate, strength-based approach. I aim to work from a psychodynamic perspective, working in-depth with you to help overcome conflict or trauma. I may utilize different techniques to help foster healing such as art, music, or play.

I have a passion for continuing my work with underrepresented, under-served, and marginalized communities. I have a special interest in working with those who are survivors of trauma, and have previous experience in grief, loss, and crisis intervention. In our work together, I am mindful of cultural and spiritual differences and strive to maintain cultural humility. I work with youth, adults, families, and couples.

I earned my Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology/Marriage and Family Therapy from Notre Dame de Namur University. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, finding balance through yoga, adventures in the outdoors, learning languages, and time spent alone.
