I’ve always been fascinated by stories. Stories inspire, open new worlds, and serve as a guide. Stories also connect us—we become closer through bridging the gap in our life experiences. I started my professional journey as an educator, using stories in the classroom. As I taught, I realized that I wanted more: to be entrusted with the great privilege of hearing others’ every day lived experiences. That passion for developing a shared connection through stories led me to pursue a Master’s degree and become a licensed social worker. As a therapist, I have the honor of sharing in people’s struggles, joys, frustrations, traumas, fears, and celebrations. As part of that process, I serve as a guide and as a support. Building this connection in therapy alongside individuals is one of the most rewarding parts of this work for me. I hope to help those who want to share their story and find a new way to heal together.
