I have had the honor of working with school-age children, teens and adults of all ages. My current clients are typically working on mood disorders (anxiety, depression) or are struggling to adjust to a change in life. I assist parents with parenting concerns and children with school or family worries or challenges. Clients may have questions about their identify, role in life, a job change, or relationships and together we can sort out the details and find a more comfortable way to approach these questions of life.

You’ve been feeling “off” for a while now. Your life isn’t necessarily falling apart but you’re not happy. You’ve thought about going to therapy many times but then you end up procrastinating. You tell yourself you should be able to figure this out on your own and that therapy is for people with problems worse than yours. But lately something has tipped the scales. Most of the time you handle your emotions pretty well but now it’s too much with everything you have going on. You’re stressed, anxious or depressed. Some days you’re not even sure how you feel.

Hello! I have earned my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I enjoy working with teenagers, adults, and older adults on issues related to depression, anxiety, grief and loss, identity, trauma, and life transitions. In session, I like to be interactive and will use traditional talk therapy along with creative methods for communicating. Many people enjoy using arts, crafts, music, and movement in session, so I help foster an environment that helps people feel safe enough to express themselves through these modalities.

I work with individuals that are wanting to know themselves better and/or want to make changes to better their life. I generally work with a wide variety of concerns and have special interests in psychological assessment, ADHD, trauma, and vocational concerns. Honoring the client’s unique multicultural identity is something I give special attention to in order to better understand how self-critical beliefs develop and how we can challenge those beliefs with respect to your personal and cultural values.

Every person’s life is a journey that will involve milestones, missteps, detours, and the occasional derailment. We all encounter obstacles - some of our own making, some provided by others. Navigating that path authentically requires self-awareness and self-understanding and sometimes the guidance and support of a fellow traveler. My role is to foster clarity and healing, to make room for life stories to unfold - as they are meant to - not empty of pain or conflict but instead filled with meaning.

Everyone has a story, and each story is different and deserves to be told. Our stories at times can be filled with unexpected and sometimes overwhelming challenges that affect each of us in different ways. Through my own personal and professional story, I have discovered that building a supportive relationship through therapy creates a safe place to explore life struggles, understand difficult issues, develop new skills, enrich relationships, and work through situations to lead a more authentic life.

My approach in therapy is about establishing connection with my clients and validating their experiences. I enjoy creating a space where people feel respected, safe, and able to share anything that may be on their minds. The effect of having one’s feelings and thoughts acknowledged and understood is a significant component in working toward progress and relief of symptoms they struggle to manage. I also believe that therapy is a collaborative process. I work together with clients and families to identify goals that enable them to feel empowered to make healthier decisions.

I believe therapy is a way to develop a secure connection that can be rare in everyday life. Developing this connection allows one a space to express authentically what may have been hidden or not heard. Within the safety of this space, real change can begin to occur. So often we believe that it is by applying willpower to an issue that we can instigate change, and are left feeling defeated in the end. In therapy, we get the chance to take these moments of defeat and transform them. We can reorganize, reorient, gain hope, and live more satisfying lives.

During my years in practice, I have noticed that many people feel like they are living their lives the way others would like them to live. This can create or contribute to depression, anxiety, and a general feeling of disconnection from oneself. Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, childhood or recent trauma, or sexuality issues, my work is dedicated to helping you find your most authentic voice so that you can create the life that you've always wanted to live.
