I grew up in Buffalo, NY. As a child, my mother always thought I would make a good therapist. Even middle and high school teachers would send other students over to me so I could be there for them and help them with their emotional distress. Being able to take in my friends in their time of need was always something I took to heart and held with the care they needed. As I grew as a person, I also found I had a curious mind and an expressive personality. I began to involve myself in various forms of creative arts. I had an eye for photography and a love for being on stage. While attending university at SUNY Buffalo, I began with a focus on psychology, fine arts, and performing arts. This is where I began training as a contemporary dancer, and through the university, I was granted the opportunity to travel to Toronto to study with the School of Toronto Dance Theatre. I build an independent and innovative dance company.
I am now a graduate of The Ontario Psychotherapy and Counseling Program, OPC, and proudly work as a psychodynamic psychotherapist. I feel that my life has given me the skillset to take people in and allow them to feel safe and in a space with no judgment. Throughout my entire life so far, I have just wanted to give others a place to be inspired and feel as though they can make a difference in their own lives. I want to offer up my creative and curious self into the therapeutic space with others to explore, imagine, and reshape perspectives to build their own subjective toolkit to experience life a little differently.
