I wasn't enjoying my life from Monday-Friday, I wasn’t happy in my relationships, and I didn’t like what I felt was a lack of control over my circumstances.
I always loved listening to people’s stories and helping my friends with their issues, so the prospect of combining art which I loved about my career in fashion, and therapy was like magic to me.
Once I was finally let go from the difficult job I was in, I knew exactly what I wanted to do, become a therapist!
I absolutely love what I do now. Helping people grow, heal, and be empowered is a gift I try to not take for granted every single day.

Most of my clients have traits of or have been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, and often have experienced a lot of trauma in their lives - I have the tools available to help if this is you!
I feel very comfortable and confident that I can help folks going through stress and anxiety that stems from work, family life, and romantic relationships.
I'm happy to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for folks in the LGBTQIA community and be that supportive ally.
I also know that I am not the right fit for every client, and I encourage you to not give up hope if that’s the case.
Getting your mind to work for you instead of against you, can be the most important thing you do in your life, as it completely changes your perspective on the world.
And I’d be happy to help guide you through it.
You can book a time to chat with me below. I can’t wait to start working with you.
