“Nothing is stronger than a small hope that does not give up.”
- Matt Haig, The Comfort Book
Welcome! I believe that change and healing occur by having your experiences - whatever they are and however they feel - held in a compassionate, non-judgmental space. Compassion at its root means "to suffer with," and I believe in walking alongside you in your healing journey and honoring the space you are in at this moment. The therapeutic relationship is meant to hold said space for you to focus purely on yourself and your growth. I tailor therapy to meet your individual needs, and I draw from dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness-based approaches, and trauma-focused care approaches to assist you in building a life you find worth living. I specialize in helping individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, and trauma, as well as burnout/compassion fatigue among mental health professionals. I am also a LBGTQIA+ affirmative clinician. I hope to support others in embracing their authentic self.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC-21281) with the Arizona Board of Behavioral Health Examiners, as well as a National Certified Counselor (#871138) with the National Board of Certified Counselors. I received my Master’s of Counseling from Arizona State University in 2017, as well as my Bachelor’s in Psychological Sciences with minors in Sociology and Anthropology in 2015. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a therapeutic approach proven effective to reduce the emotional intensity of difficult life experiences
