Personal Statement: Working with and helping others has always been one of my greatest life passions. At a young age, I quickly learned that life can be unpredictable, yet beautiful. I find great fulfillment in working and interacting with others to find the beauty in life, no matter what type of journey or experiences they have been given. Each family and individual is incredibly unique and I truly enjoy having the opportunity to help each person that walks into my life. At times, we all need a helping hand-someone to listen and provide us with support. I feel very grateful to have this be a part of my life each day as a therapist. There is something incredibly special about watching others grow and learn about themselves and their own life experiences. My goal is to provide hope, build resiliency, and empower all those that I have the opportunity to work with. It is my hope that others learn from me just as much as I learn from them.
