As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities.

It is not easy to look for help. Especially when we feel overwhelmed with pain, suffering, and confusion. We all deserve to enjoy life, healthy sexuality and nurturing relationships. You are not alone in this journey of finding the best way to be a human being and be free of unnecessary suffering. I believe you have the answers you are looking for and I can support you in accessing your own wisdom to re-design your path and life in the way you need and want now.

Marriage and relationships are challenging and it is even harder to ask for what you want. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. As a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy, I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect. It is my passion to heal shame, have the hard talks, and facilitate communication. Personally, I know the challenges of maintaining the passion in a long term relationship and I don't believe it is normal to give up on intimacy.

Counseling may take different forms depending on whether you’re dealing with a significant life transition, loss, or have been struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety. As a strengths-based counselor, I believe we have an inner compass that can guide us, with support, toward positive change. Bringing years of coaching experience to counseling, I hold a safe place for you to explore your internal life as well as your natural ability to shine in activities and relationships. Positive connection with others is how we discover---or rediscover---a place of safety and wholeness in our lives.

I believe we all need a little extra support from time to time. We get stuck, Overwhelmed, Fearful, and sometimes even when it feels like the walls are closing in, it can still be so hard to ask for help. It is my privilege to be there when people are ready to make that leap and ask for what they need.

Asking for help can be a monumental decision that requires a lot of courage. Finding the right therapist can be an equally difficult task. A therapeutic relationship needs to feel safe and collaborative, as it can serve as a foundation for healing. My goal is to assist you in accessing your internal strengths, exploring obstacles and working to overcome your challenges. Understanding what style or type of therapy you need can feel confusing. I will work with you to create a plan for treatment that is aligned with your needs and personality.

Sometimes life presents us with difficult, painful, or even seemingly unbearable challenges. Sometimes we, ourselves, can be a source of the pain and challenges. Either way, we must be able to access our resources -- inner and outer -- to cope with the pain, the imbalance, the overwhelm, the stuckness ... and, ultimately, to learn, heal, and grow from our experiences..... My job is to help you best utilize resources you already have and to offer you more tools to help you change undesirable patterns in yourself and your life.

Does the transition into adulthood feel confusing, scary, or overwhelming? Do you feel like there's something wrong with you, or like you should have more figured out by now? Maybe you find yourself longing for support and guidance to help you get clear about who YOU really are and what YOU really want? Perhaps the friends and family in your life, whether they’re well-meaning or too busy struggling with their own challenges, aren’t showing up in a way that actually feels helpful or inspiring to you as you try to navigate these big questions? Do you feel pressured to figure out everything on your own but it all feels like too much?
