""Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." C.G. Jung-- You might suffer from anxiety, depression, grief, and/or relationship issues, but the key is that you are willing to explore why. My philosophy is holistic in that I feel like it is important to examine each part of life because I truly believe everything is connected when it concerns mental, emotional, and physical suffering and pain. I have recently completed a yoga teacher certification so I am able to incorporate somatic principles and movement into my work with clients."

"Making the decision to seek help is the the first step towards living a healthier, happier life. The second step is finding the right therapist. I believe that success in therapy is dependent on the strength of the relationship between the counselor and client. I view myself as an advocate, a catalyst for change, and an objective sounding board, rather than an expert who can listen to your problems for an hour and then magically know how to run your life better than you do. You are the expert on you! My job is to help you learn how to help yourself."

"I don’t have to tell you how frustrating and disempowering it is to work at a job you dislike, but it can feel equally intimidating to make a change when you don’t know how. Fortunately, you don't have to figure it out by yourself! Imagine approaching your search for meaningful work as an epic quest: a challenging but ultimately rewarding source of growth and personal transformation. Learning to navigate change in this way opens the door to a more emotionally resilient way of being in the world, no matter what life throws at you. This soul-centered attitude is at the heart of my approach. "

"Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices."
