So many times it can feel as though our lives are headed in directions that we never expected. Other times there can be a sense of stagnation that keeps us feeling stuck. Regardless of your current or past experiences it is having the desire to move forward that keeps us going, and this takes courage. Seeking therapy takes courage and I understand this. It is with great respect that I welcome you to counseling services and would be honored to assist you in sorting through whatever brings you to this page. All office visits are secure videoconferencing sessions eliminating time off work and travel times to a traditional office.

I welcome clients who are struggling with chronic illness or pain, anxiety, concerns related to gender and sexuality, trauma, grief and loss. We will work together to break down all areas that may be leading to the issues you are wanting to address. Giving attention to these new insights can often help in reducing the feel of control they may carry.

I invite clients who have concerns about feeling judged during therapy. I believe that being unique does not mean you have a pathology. It is my full intention that you feel comfortable, heard, understood and validated during our sessions.
