When you listen to your mind and body about what you really want, you are aware that -above all else- you want freedom: freedom to be spontaneous, to fear less, to love yourself and others without hesitation, to be present to yourself rather than being caught in the past or the future...You struggle and you sense that others may not struggle as much as you do. You want closeness but you feel cut off from yourself; it doesn't feel possible to be close to others (not in the way you would like.) You want inner freedom and have no idea how to get from where you are now to that kind of experience. What would freedom even feel like?...

Life can be overwhelming. We all need some dedicated time to nurture and heal. Why should someone hire a therapist rather than just talk through their problems with a friend or family member? First of all, if you have someone in your life to whom you feel comfortable opening up, that is awesome. Keep doing that. We all need these vital human connections. But a therapist brings something a little different to the table than a best friend.

Each and every one of us has a unique story that shapes who we are as individuals. This story can be a mixture of positive and negative experiences, joyful and painful, the good and the bad. How we experience this story, how we share it with others, and how it impacts us are all pieces to an intricate puzzle of who we are and how we live our lives. My primary goal as a therapist is to create a non-judgmental environment filled with acceptance and compassion in the hopes that, by doing so, clients will feel comfortable sharing their stories, learn to embrace their authentic selves, and grow into the person they wish to be.

We all experience pain--it’s normal. A lot can unsettle us as humans--feelings of anxiety and depression; career and identity development; making meaning of unpleasant thoughts, feelings, sensations, and experiences; and navigating the balance between chaos and control, freedom and responsibility, connectedness and differentiation, action and paralysis. It's no wonder life feels difficult so much of the time! I'm passionate about helping people become more grounded and accepting of themselves as they grapple with these hazards of being human.

I had the honor of serving as the director of the counseling center at Columbus College of Art & Design for 10 years before moving into private practice. I especially enjoy working with artists and creatives, queer folks, transgender and non-binary folks, and neurodiverse folks. Some of the treatment areas I've focused on most include PTSD and complex trauma, sexual violence, childhood abuse, dissociation, anxiety and panic, depression, and relationship concerns. I believe in folks’ own natural and innate ability to learn, shift, grow, and heal, and I see myself as a guide or partner in the process. I highly value client feedback.

If you are looking for a counselor that is empirically-focused, strength-based, directive, and easy to talk to, I might be the kind of counselor you're looking for. My approach to counseling is a scientific-model led, client collaborated, personal relationship focused. We meet, talk about what you want to talk about, and I will be there for positive support, processing, and to teach about symptoms and interventions. Traits of clients that thrive best with me are curiosity, willingness/ desire to grow, and willingness to try new things.
