Licensed Mental Health Counselor
Everyone has hopes and dreams for their lives, but sometimes it can feel like life gets in the way of pursuing those. If you’re reading this, you’ve most likely had a similar experience. You are not alone, and there is a way through. Therapy can help you discover and address what you need to pursue your dreams. You can find your path again through dedicated sessions and concrete tools that you can immediately practice and integrate.

Professional Experience

I have a diverse background in helping others reach their goals, and I would be honored to come along side you, working together to meet yours. I work with adults, elders, and teenagers ages 14 plus. I enjoy working with individuals and couples. I have had the privilege of working with a variety of needs, including people with disabilities, anxiety disorders, spiritual and existential issues, grief, and self-harm. I use a variety of modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and mindfulness.

As a person with a physical disability, I have had intimate experience with what it means to have life appear limited to certain parameters. My exposure to medical trauma and recovery helped me decide that I wanted to work with others who have experienced profound pain. This led me to pursue my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Canisius College in Buffalo, NY, and complete 3,000-hours to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in 2015. Previously, I have worked at Best Self of WNY, Spectrum Human Services, Kenmore Mercy Hospital, and also ran a private practice. I am glad to be a part of the Be Embodied team, where we can address your concerns from a holistic approach, addressing your mind, body and spirit.
