How I can help.

I strive to help clients navigate spaces where various aspects of their lives, both personal and structural, intersect. I believe it is important to think critically about what it truly means to be happy, healthy, and well.

Passion for helping others.

Everyone is going through something and humans are wired for connection. If we can connect with others, we are better able to navigate our difficult times. I am inspired and humbled by walking with people, taking steps toward achieving all aspects of wellness.

Life outside the office.

I have a one year old son that keeps me very busy these days! I enjoy connecting with friends and family. I love spending time in nature, walking, bike riding, gardening, cooking, and pursuing wellness. I also enjoy reading and continuously learning new things.

Areas that I can assist with.

I specialize in mental health and wellness. This includes a wide range of concerns, such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • and many others

I have a special interest in anti-oppressive practice, anti-colonial practice, consciousness raising, empowerment, and helping clients to understand how both individual factors, as well as larger systemic and structural factors affect their health and wellbeing. 

Therapy approaches.

I utilize a wide range of therapeutic modalities within an anti-oppressive framework:

  • Narrative therapy
