Caseload is currently full. There are times when you may find life is too messy, too painful and you feel too alone with all of it. Therapy provides a time and place to share your inner struggles, fears and anxieties while receiving support, insight, perspective and new coping skills. The process allows you to heal and move forward with a stronger sense of who you've been, who you are now and who you are becoming.

Are you noticing difficulty with low motivation, low energy, or lack of joy in your life? Are you so worried about things in your life that you find it difficult to concentrate, relax, and stay focused with daily tasks? If so it's likely that you may be struggling with either depression or anxiety. Therapy can offer you the chance to learn more effective ways of coping with your mood as well as giving you an outlet to connect deeply with another person without the threat of abandonment or judgment. If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired then I urge you to take the plunge and allow yourself the chance for lasting change.

All emotions have a job - to bring something to our attention, to give us information about our world, sometimes to give us the physical energy to take action. I see my role as a therapist would be to help you better understand yourself, and when it fits to teach you tools and skills so that you can be effective in your life. I can be a guide and an ally through many challenges - these include depression and anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, caregiving, life-threatening illnesses, grief and loss. Whatever emotion or situation led you to seek help, you can use it to heal your life.

I am dedicated to being a trusted presence of empathy, truth, and support through this process, from start to finish. My practice is focused on helping people deeply understand their unique challenges, embrace and utilize their strengths, and begin to heal, change, and grow. I welcome the opportunity to connect with you and begin to help shape the type of relationships, passions, priorities, and life you wish for.

Mental health challenges can feel isolating and difficult to overcome without help. It is my experience that a meaningful relationship with the right therapist can be healing and create long-lasting change. I enjoy working with people of all ages, particularly young adults dealing with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, trauma, or loss. I utilize a non-judgmental, empathetic approach to build a therapeutic relationship that is both encouraging and uplifting. I consider it an honor to support people during pivotal, and sometimes painful stages of their lives.

Life can be so unfair and being human is incredibly difficult, yet there is also so much beauty in life to experience as well! It can be exhausting to feel like you have to put on a front and be filtered in order to do life while suffering. Learning to find a way to hold and make sense of these contradictions can be a painful, confusing and complicated process! We often view things as being “either/or” when much of life is actually "both/and." My desire is to create a safe place for you to JUST BE…unfiltered…to help process, and receive rest for your soul and mind in order to heal and live life as your best authentic self.

I have experience and enjoy working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, life transitions, and trauma. I have also helped parents whose children are at risk of entering a higher level of care, parents who have recently reunited with their children after foster care, parents who have adopted, or parents who are struggling due to their own experience of trauma in their childhood. Everyone needs something different out of therapy but at the very least, it is my job to provide a therapeutic relationship focused on listening and connection.

Stressed? Burned out? Anxious? Depressed? Overwhelmed by the world? Difficulty communicating? Feeling disconnected from your partner or yourself? The world is a crazy messy place sometimes (especially lately). Our past and current circumstances often create a difficult place to be in our thoughts and our feelings and we often can feel “stuck” in our current circumstances. Some of us carry really heavy burdens and keep on a brave face for those around us because for a lot of reasons like our jobs, roles at home, family, friends, keeping up with the Joneses, you name it!

"Therapy can be a place where the wonder and awe of self discovery can culminate in personal clarity, empowerment and promote a richer more fulfilling life. Living with past and present wounds, dealing with depression, anxiety, anger or addictions, or working through difficult relationships and life transitions, our lives may seem out of control when our emotions and our thinking are out of balance. As your counselor I will help you by gently guiding you in finding that balance by creating a safe and supportive environment as you develop skills to regain your mentally healthy life."
