I dream of creating beauty wherever I go and love using my story to connect deeper with others.
When people would share about their wonderful childhood memories, I often remained quiet.
My memories brought feelings of sadness, shame, loneliness, isolation, dread, and fear. As the victim of childhood sexual abuse, I longed for a beautiful story to tell. But I've come to realize that my story is beautiful - not because of what happened to me but because I did the work to be set free.
Looking back, there were so many people who helped me create a life I love living. I want to help others do the same.
I hope my personal story & professional work empowers you to do the work to set yourself free. You can heal and live a beautiful life. You are the author of your story. How will you bring the next chapter to life?
I used to shy away from sharing my story. But now I celebrate every chapter. After years of struggling with my own pain, grief, and trauma, I finally learned how to break free from my past and embrace my story. I believe we all have the ability to heal. No matter where you come from, you can create a life you love living. But often, we need someone to listen, provide empathy, give feedback, use the necessary professional tools, and support us further in doing so. Let me help you create a life you love.
I had no idea at the time...
The struggles in my life would equip me for the work I do in my private practice. Now, I get to help my clients feel seen and safe as I witness their wounds, help them have lightbulb breakthroughs, and find their deepest healing.
What I believe:
We all have the ability to heal.
We can overcome anything.
We have everything we need to heal.
