I help folks identify, access, and more effectively use their strengths and resilience - even under incredibly difficult and complex circumstances. Clients come to my practice to find alternatives to patterns and behaviors that are no longer working, to heal from traumas, explore identity, navigate transitions, and get unstuck. I work with teens, young adults, and adults who want real change, more support, effective boundaries, and honest connection in their lives using a social justice counseling framework that is client-defined, trauma-informed and strengths-based.

I have no hidden agenda, what you see is what you get. My job is to empower you to find your way through stuck places and to accompany you on your path of self-discovery.

Pressure is mounting and your emotions are out of control. You’re scared you won’t be up to the daunting challenges ahead. Long held dreams remain maddeningly out of reach. You’re stuck. Old destructive patterns of coping have only made things worse. Family and friends don’t get what you’re going through, nor can they offer the help that you really need. The chaos and stress follow you from the workplace into your home, shaking the foundation of your most important relationships. Your last good night’s rest is a distant memory. Frustration and indecision cloud your thinking and make every step forward an agonizing ordeal.
Mental health struggles can feel isolating. There is stigma in our society about receiving help. This only compounds the negative impact to our wellbeing. Life throws a lot of curve balls, and overcoming these hurdles is daunting, especially if we never learned how. I work collaboratively with clients to help them learn how to cope with mental health struggles as well as better understand the root causes.
I have worked successfully with clients dealing with stress, depression, anxiety and substance issues. Whether in crisis, or for those looking for ongoing guidance, therapy brings rewards of clarity and increased joy in daily living.
