"We are all flawed, and yet still worthy" -anonymous
I am excited to have joined the Renew team working as a lead therapist in the 2TENTS adolescent IOP program and as the intake coordinator for the adult anxiety IOP program. I enjoy working with teenagers and young adults to help them navigate challenges in life as they come. I also have training in couples and family work and am passionate about helping relationships thrive. I believe people are innately good and can truly succeed with genuine support from others. Our support systems can certainly shape us and I consider myself very lucky to get to work with individuals, couples and families to help improve relationships and overall well being.
