It can be challenging to admit when something is so seriously amiss that professional help is needed. While drawing that conclusion is uncomfortable for many, it does not have to be. Finding the right therapist can mean all the difference in settling the uneasiness. Finding a therapist with whom you can both connect and be understood can make opening up about your innermost thoughts that much easier. Reach out and let us walk with you at every step in the process-- from the initial consultation through the course of therapy.

I focus mostly on person-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy, paired with solution-focused, allowing every client to see their situation in a different light, and understand how thoughts and feelings play a role in status and outcome.

Seeking help to deal with issues in your life takes lots of courage. I respect that greatly. Often the first step of committing to counseling is the biggest hurdle. Whether it's relationship problems, coping with loss or transitions, anxiety, depression, self esteem concerns, there are times when professional assistance can really help. Sometimes counseling goals are accomplished quickly and other times there is a need for longer term and deeper work. I have the training and expertise to do both.

I specialize in treating clients who are struggling with multiple addictions, mood regulation, trauma, behavioral, and relational issues. Many of my clients report struggling with trying to fill a void, feeling lost, or stuck. This may show up as some sort of unhealthy coping mechanism such as an addiction, unhealthy relationships, or a behavioral issue. Only temporary relief may be found until the true underlying issues are addressed. Together we can uncover what is underneath your struggles and address what we find. Facing underlying trauma while concurrently looking at the presenting issues is what I do

Talking about problems can be difficult, not to mention taking action to solve them. The change process unfolds when you are listened to and understood. With warmth, humor, interest, and respect, I will help you focus on action steps as well as just talking as you make and maintain contact with your goals and also with your hopes and dreams. To do so I will also help you examine any life patterns, active in the present or originating from the past, that contribute to feeling stuck. Assisting you to bring mindfulness, commitment, and self-compassion into the change process will be my role.

Your well-being is the foundation that serves you in life and self-care can often fall to the bottom of the list. Although life may seem uneasy right now, addressing your own needs should not be seen as a selfish act, but rather a path to self-preservation. Reaching out for support is not always easy and getting the support you desire is the highest priority.

My approach to counseling builds on existing strengths and situates you, the client, as the expert on your own life. I believe that relationships with self, others, and our broader communities are foundational to wellbeing, and encourage exploration of these areas through a trauma-informed, culturally attuned lens. I take a compassionate approach to existing dynamics and coping methods and work alongside you to bring patterns and the emotions that underlie them into conscious awareness. I am affirming of all people, including multicultural, neuroexpansive, LGBTQ+, and polyamorous people and relationships.

If you were given space to share the story of your body, how would it begin? What would that story say about love and loss, about eating and movement, about pain or trauma? Our lived experiences impact our ability to feel at home within ourselves and you may be there today. Maybe you’re feeling disconnected from yourself and others. Or you’re struggling to nourish and move your body in compassionate ways. Maybe your experiences have taught you that to connect to your internal experience would be dangerous or unsafe. Your ability to be in your body and use your voice may feel complicated, problematic, or even nonexistent.

One of the most difficult things to do in life can be making the decision to reach out and ask for help. My clients would describe me as gentle, nurturing, and easy to talk to, but would also say that I am willing to say the "hard to hear" things when necessary. My goal is assist you in learning to cope with current stressors and assist in processing past hurts that contribute to current struggles. I see my job as one of a helper or guide as you work to achieve your goals.
