We are all but fellow travelers...
Great Oaks Therapy Center was a one woman show for two years before expanding into this beautiful group of clinicians that I'm proud to have working for Great Oaks. As the owner, my dream is that you all come to this space feeling welcomed, cared for, and ready for healing, for growth and for self-love.

We aren’t lost because we don’t know where we’re going; usually we are lost because when we don’t know where we are.
I value the whole: the whole person, the whole story, and the whole journey. Some of these moments, relationships, and experiences are beautiful. Some are tragic and painful. Many sit somewhere in between. No matter how disoriented, lost, or pained one might be, at the center is life and beauty waiting to be rediscovered and reclaimed. It is my passion, privilege, and desire to journey alongside you to rediscover your center, the core of who you are, and to launch you on your path to wholeness and vibrancy.

Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be and embracing who we are.
I’m in the business of story-shaping. I believe we become the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves. Are you stuck in a story that feels disempowering or defeating? Let me be your co-author and collaborator in creating your counter story—a brand new, one-of-a-kind narrative that aligns with your truest, most authentic self.
Passion Populations & Specializations:
LGBTQ+, Couples, Women-Empowerment, Teens
Keepin’ It Real/My Therapeutic Style:
As a former journalist turned therapist, I believe in giving voice to the voiceless. In my work, I utilize an integration of Narrative, Solution-focused and Emotionally focused therapies, with dashes of mindfulness and experiential pieces baked into the process, to create a nonjudgmental, compassionate and empowering space that will allow each individual, couple or family to take back the driver’s seat on their own lives.

Come and take one giant step into your healthier tomorrow.
Sometimes you just need to remember to not take yourself too seriously. I have the great privilege of working with fellow travelers on their journey to a peaceful and more fulfilling existence. Therapy is a mechanism to test your faith, try your courage and continue to grow into everything that you know you can be. Come take a walk with me; you never know which step is the one that changes everything.

Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.
The beginning of a journey like this one is always started with anxiety, excitement and a small bit of fear. Joining the Great Oaks team has been an exhilarating start to my career as a therapist. I have been able to serve the community and develop a voice and passion for couples. Please come join me in growth and let's start the journey together.

Once in a while blow your own damn mind
Finding myself as a therapist in this group of talented clinicians is utterly delightful. Finding that I can encourage others to pursue their goals is my passion. I will sit with men and women who have doubted their own strength for far too long and work with them to find the voice that has quietly whispered - "you can do this" and make it roar. Whether you're coming in by yourself, or you're coming in as a couple we will walk together toward a brighter and empowered version of yourselves.
