Come on over and let’s talk – I’m here for you. It can be so hard to share the things that bother us the most, to talk through experiences that we’d rather not think about. It’s hard to believe talking and connecting can help us feel better, but I will partner with you to create change! Change can come from within and can be created with another, so let’s get started on your journey. We are going to find your strengths and apply them with practical steps and actions to make the positive changes you want to see.

I currently am not taking new clients. We all, at times, can benefit from walking with a special companion on this journey; someone who is not part of our everyday life, who has skills and experience to bring us insight and comfort. Sometimes our families, friends, or coworkers don't feel like a safe place to turn. My desire is to provide a space for understanding, healing, and hope so that you can begin to experience more fully, who you are and the beauty of your story. I see adults that struggle with anxiety, depression and life transitions challenges.

I specialize in Christian counseling and strive to help everyone find purpose in their experiences, create a vision for healing and truly embrace their full potential. My approach for clinical work has always been to be present with each person and encourage them to use whatever trials they have experienced to become stronger and enhance their overall story. I genuinely believe none of us have to be defined by what has happened to us in life, but rather can use those experiences, good and bad alike, to become better versions of ourselves.

Your decision to engage in counseling is to be appreciated and honored as it often involves courage, commitment, vulnerability, and a willingness to change. It is important that you feel heard, understood, and accepted for who you are and what you have already experienced. I view my role as giving you the support, safety, caring, and respect you deserve while facilitating you doing that for yourself. I will also provide cognitive, emotional, and behavioral models, "tools" and experiences to enhance your self-awareness, self-expression, and self-care; and help you learn to trust in your basic goodness and wisdom.

MY APPROACH TO HELPING: I see life as a journey. Sometimes we get in a rut and have difficulty getting out, or sometimes we think we are on the right road and things turn out differently than expected, leaving us devastated and not knowing how or what to change. At times, we are unaware of our repeated patterns or how early life experiences have affected us. We usually do the best we can with what skills we have at the time. Sometimes, we have to change our skill set and develop strategies and skills that will help us be happier and more functional people. Life is a journey, one step at a time.

I prefer email & text over voice call. I hope to provide a sense of safety, trust, and acceptance. I tend to work with clients who were once like myself, unsure why they never really "fit" into different settings throughout childhood and now adulthood. It can come as feeling a tiny bit different than those around you. Maybe you did well in school and had a couple close friends, but you don't understand why you feel overwhelmed by certain large environments, sounds, or even foods. You may know the word autism, but only think of it as Sheldon Cooper or Rain Man. It could be that you identify as queer and feel there is something else.

The focus of therapy is on you not the others in your life - for after all you cannot change other people but rather the only person you can change is yourself. I can help you make the changes you want to make. Want to survive a trauma, stay sober, lose weight, interact better with others, recover from a loss, examine a troubled intimacy? This is what I do.

You are doing life--going to work, to school--but it's not easy! And it's exhausting presenting as if all's OK all the time: to put on the smile, to muster the energy. But that little voice still whispers negativity in the back of your head: All. The. Damn. Time. You don't know how to take appreciation, much less see it in yourself. You don't know how to say no.
