I’m a wife and a mom of 2, an ex-tech PM, and an avid fan of The West Wing, small groups, reading, and podcasting.

Professionally, I love working with 20- and 30-somethings navigating burnout, transition, differentiation, relational conflict, and walking through seasons of loss and grief.

My goal is to walk alongside you, and assist you in your journey to becoming a more authentic, passionate, and aware version of yourself. Our time together will likely include helping you to identify your values, working through emotional and cognitive barriers that keep you from achieving your goals, and helping you develop practical skills to meet the challenges of your everyday life.

My therapeutic approach is integrative, combining evidence-based practices such as CBT, while leaning heavily on mindfulness, positive psychology, existentialism, and systems theory.
