"Learn to be quiet enough to hear the genuine within yourself so that you can hear it in others."

My ideal client, whether individuals, couples, or family, are people looking to connect with themselves and others authentically. Those relationships are the most connected in love and the continued discovery of their true selves.

Pre-Licensed Therapist 

 

I enjoy collaborating with people who are managing the history and impacts of loneliness, trauma, and anxiety, and who wish to work toward greater joy and connection; to themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.

 

“When we can see ourselves as we truly are and accept ourselves, we build the necessary foundation for self-love…whether we learn how to love ourselves and others will depend on the presence of a loving environment. Self-love cannot flourish in isolation.”

Abigail Smith

Intern Therapist

I love to help clients who are navigating complexities within their relational connections and supporting families as they journey through the unique challenges and joys of raising children with neurodiverse needs. I want to help clients learn, explore, and grow together in finding fulfilling connections.

“Our relations with one another are like a stone arch, which would collapse if the stones did not mutually support each other, and which is upheld in this very way.”

-Seneca
