"While working as a middle school counselor and helping students navigate mental health concerns, I found myself struggling with a growing and debilitating amount of anxiety and depression. The experience of reaching out for help to my primary care physician for medication, finding a therapist that was accessible, and even being able to voice my struggles despite my professional knowledge and experience was eye-opening for me. This experience is foundational to how I approach my role as a clinician and the patience, care, empathy and dedication I give to those who are suffering. I am passionate about being present to witness the lives of those I serve and find deep meaning in the ability to help others. I believe the greatest path to healing is connection, and am honored to connect with each and every client I see."
