Are you struggling with a roller coaster of emotions, broken relationships, explosive anger, negative thoughts, or self-harming behaviors? Or feeling nothing at all...a sort of numbness toward everything and everyone around you? I believe each of us is given an amazing ability to get through life's toughest moments. However, sometimes it's difficult to do because of our past experiences. Therapy provides a safe, calm, consistent setting which allows this process to take place. Your feelings are real, and you can learn how to manage them.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I will walk with you, step by step, and provide that safe place where healing always begins. My experience, expertise, and training is in providing psychotherapy to those who have been through difficult life experiences. I enjoy helping you move from feeling anxious and stuck to feeling confident in your own abilities.
I am holistic in my approach (I see you as a whole person, not just a bunch of symptoms), and will encourage you to listen to your body, thoughts, beliefs, and emotions (the parts of you). This focus inward will provide a path to the problems that you are facing and uncover possible solutions. We can walk this path together - you don't have to do this alone.
