Working in the mental health field for almost 20 years has been a joyous journey for me. I am always awed at the power and value of the human spirit that facilitate change and healing. I celebrate every step of courage to face life's challenges and "choose joy". I have also learned that incorporating concepts borrowed from the family systems theory and personality theory create greater depth into one's practice of insight into daily life functioning. I am a trauma-informed and strengths-based counselor. I utilize cognitive-behavioral techniques, focusing on my clients' self-concept, goals, and resilience. I support personal responsibility as a modality for change. I would be honored to share a season in your life journey towards your healing and development.

The most important factor in a therapy relationship is the relationship itself. It is my task to be available, open and supportive as the person seeks to put into words what he/she is experiencing and to work through the negative effects or life experiences, as well as lifting to the fore each person's gifts, strengths and unique perspectives. It is imperative, therefore, that we establish a relationship of trust primarily by noting how past experience may have helped or hindered one's natural self-expression and ability to actualize one's true self.

Throughout life, we can experience many unexpected situations and circumstances that shape how we view the world and the people around us. At times, it can feel like "life has dealt us a bad hand" from the various disappointments, traumas, family conflicts, and relationship issues that we've experienced. Together, through a collaborative effort, we can embark upon a therapeutic journey of self-discovery, self-awareness, and internal healing that can help us find meaning and purpose from the chaotic and painful circumstances.

Life has a way of throwing obstacles (trauma, depression, anxiety, addictions, etc.) in your path and for some reason we feel the need to control these obstacles. Guess what, encountering obstacles in life doesn't make you weak or a bad person - it makes you human. Regardless of the situation or circumstances, everyone has the capacity to get through life's difficulties. If you allow me to take this journey with you, I'll help you channel your resources, build off your number one strength (yourself) and help you transition from attempting to control problems to finding balance by learning how to manage them instead.

Congratulations on making it this far; searching for a therapist can be an overwhelming process, and the first step is often the hardest! Many individuals struggle with depression, anxiety, struggles with sex, or simply the desire to understand themselves more thoroughly. Whether to improve mood and functioning, improve relationships, or work on issues with sex/sexuality, therapy can be reparative, strengthening, and play a role in maximizing enjoyment of life! I work from an affirming and social justice approach with people who identify as LGBTQIA and people of color, and I am kink- and non-monogamy informed and affirming.

Life can be full of challenges that may deprive you of your serenity. Are you in need of relief from emotions and relationships that are intense or emotionally painful? Maybe you're constantly in disagreement with your partner, and can't figure out why. Maybe you're struggling with anxiety or depression, difficult memories, or dealing with the impact of a challenging past. Are you in recovery from drugs/alcohol, and finding it hard to navigate the challenges of early sobriety, such as guilt and shame, or the pressured fear of letting others down? Whatever your stressors, you too can experience peace and live a productive life.

It's disturbing when you feel yourself repeating the same patterns over and over. You're smart and otherwise doing well in most other areas of your life, but you just can't seem to figure it out. It shows up in funny ways: You can't quite communicate, you're unable to fully commit and be vulnerable, or feel like your true self. You can’t relax or sleep well with so much anxiety and doubt. When you don't feel right your body can't relax. Others believe the mask you wear and don't know you're not as put together as you present yourself to be. You've tried to figure it out yourself but you know that at this point you need some help.
