Are your days consumed with worry, fear or depression? Do you feel as though life is getting you down? Are you struggling with stress or anxiety? All of these things can affect our ability to function and enjoy life to its fullest. Counseling can help. I assist individuals of all ages, adolescents, teens, college students and adults in navigating difficult situations. I provide a welcoming, safe, empathetic and non-judgmental environment. Talking about our worries, struggles or vulnerabilities can seem scary, but getting help doesn't have to be!

If you’re seeking help to manage depression or suicidal thoughts, then I might be the right fit. Maybe you’ve used substances and have fallen dangerously close to addiction as a result of your depression. You realize that you want someone who fully believes in you, period. Clients who work best with me have goals that center around growing awareness of their own attitude and mindset, shifting into positive thinking, and daily mindfulness. They may feel plagued by suicidal thoughts, but want to create safety plans that include important people and alternate activities. Ultimately, I want my clients to know and believe in their worth.

“What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just be normal?” That’s what you’ve thought to yourself countless times. The answer? It’s not you, it’s trauma. Trauma wreaks havoc on our lives, easily causing both depression and anxiety. It doesn’t stop there. It also sets us up to experience major difficulties with functioning in our personal and professional lives. It’s time for you to heal. If you’re ready to learn how to reduce your symptoms and explore the impact of trauma in your current relationships and on your well-being, then you’re in the right place.
