I see individuals as capable of living a full and joyful life. I am here to facilitate the removal of those blocks, caused by past traumas, and / or difficult life transitions, that might be getting in your way. As we work together from a compassionate, strength-based perspective to remove the negative blocks (emotional and mental pain) from your path, life becomes easier and more joyful. As you heal mentally, emotionally and physically you will begin to attract those experiences and relationships into your life that are healthy, more fulfilling & enriching. My master's degree in Counselor Education has prepared me for this work.

**Note: I am not currently accepting new patients.** We are all in trouble. Some of us are anxious, trying to avoid trouble at all costs. Some of us start trouble with loved ones for reasons we can't understand. Some of us get into trouble at school or at work. And many of us are troubled by past traumas that we can't seem to shake. My aim in therapy is to partner with you around your goals and your values, to figure out what's worth your time and trouble. Therapy is a time, just for you, to heal and grow at your own pace.

You have been putting off therapy for months, but the stress and worry is getting to be too much. You've spent years holding it together, with so many people counting on you at work and home. It’s exhausting feeling like you can never relax, be real, and let yourself be cared for. You’re an accomplished leader and professional, and as far as anyone can tell, handling high responsibility and high visibility roles well. You thought when you accomplished your goals, all would be well, but you still never feel good enough. You're tired of giving so much and appearing to succeed while privately struggling. It's time for a change.

What change would you like to see in your life? I would like to see you make that change. Individual therapy takes an expert and a consultant. The client is the expert on their own person and life experiences, and the counselor is the consultant who is hired to help identify and problem solve that expert's barriers to success. I specialize in helping people gain emotional stability, a strong sense of identity, and the self-confidence they need to make changes in their lives that they want to make.

There is never a wrong time to start therapy, nor is there a right one. We won’t worry about right or wrong, but instead we’ll accept where you are - as we work together to discover where you want to go and how to get there. I spend a lot of my free time hiking, seeking out new and interesting terrain. The growth you will hopefully experience during our work together may be much like a challenging hike, with some gentle slopes and triumphant summits, but also with trips, stumbles, and strenuous climbs. I cannot climb your mountains for you, but I will climb them with you and help to show you the way forward.
