I was born, raised, and educated in the Chicagoland area. Marriage moved me to the Bay Area, and it has been a joy to explore the vibrant West Coast. My clinical training has primarily been in community mental health centers and private practices.
All of my education, training, and experience culminated in the inception of TherapyNest A Center for Anxiety and Family Therapy. I started this practice in 2015 with the hope of providing a more individualized experience for my clients. TherapyNest is family owned and operated by me and my husband, and we intend to keep it that way for as long as we possibly can.
Philosophically, I strive to be authentic both personally and professionally. I believe that being genuine, straightforward, and unassuming helps me develop honest connections with my clients. I believe the therapeutic relationship should be dynamic, so I try and inject some fun and humor wherever I can along the way.
