About

Taking the step to seek out counseling takes tremendous courage and vulnerability. My approach in counseling is holistic and takes into account the whole body, mind, and spirit. As a therapist I treat individuals, couples, and families regardless of race, age, sexuality, gender, religion, or ethnicity. Both professionally and personally, I believe that we all have what is necessary for true growth and change. Join me on the journey of exploring your needs and goals to help you accomplish a desired outcome.
Areas of expertise include: substance use, trauma, mood/anxiety concerns, relationship issues, life changes/adjustments, grief/loss, non-monogamous and polyamorous couples, gender and sexual identity, LGBTQI+ individuals, men's issues, anger management, depression, and working with individual, couples, families.
We all deserve to be heard and feel validated in safe non-judgmental space. My role as a therapist is to empower you to draw upon your natural strengths and skills and to develop a plan of action so that growth, recovery, and life fulfillment can occur.
